ah, that woudl be BBQ pork or "Char Sue" in Cantonese

the trick with the egg is to push the rice and veg to one side of the wok, break in the eggs and whisk them with a chopstick till they semi-congeal and then mix them in with the bulk rest

of course, you do know you must ALWAYS use day old cold rice and never freshly boiled, dont' you ?

because the grains separate more easily than moist rice and therefore absorb the oil and flavours more readily.

SW - while you're here - how do you cook perfect rice? ('scuse hijack BigLips). Since I got scared of it I'm either ending up with crunchy or soggy.

get yourself to China Town and buy a rice cooker. End of Story

Sydney China Town tidbits:
1) Mr Wong says the best char sue noodles in the world are to be had there
2) David Bowie filmed the China Girl video there

Really? I always thought that would be a) cheating b) another excuse for some gratuitous gadget buying that I'm so prone to doing.

But, as you've instructed me to do so, then rice cooker it will be. Thank You!

Most interesting about China Town. You'd think that David Bowie would go to, well, China wouldn't you?

Actually, have had some excellent Yum Cha here. To do it right you have to have somebody who speaks the lingo with you or you end up with the deep fried chicken feet. [lesson learned emoticon]. Not a problem for you I suspect.

actually (and keep this hush hush) I really really don't like Chinese restaurant food. I sit lemon-lipped sipping OJ when mr Wong takes the Fragrant Boys to dim sum of a Saturday.

shudder at very mention of chicken's feet
