Their wok ranges have jet burners, a domestic range can't compete with that intense heat.... Also make sure the steamed rice you use is a day or two old.

What she said. Old, dry steamed rice and a really hot wok. If I'm making fresh rice for cooking fried rice, I add a little less water. I cook a lot of the fried rice ingredients separately so the temperature of my wok doesn't drop too much.

A Tom of butter and lots of toasted sesame seeds get mine close to restaurant quality, but its never the same.

Re: Fried rice?

I have this advice:

If you use fresh rice, put it in the freezer spread out on a cookie sheet. Take out when cooled down and not yet frozen. It will not clog up in the pan that way. Hot rice is the problem I've found.

And I found this just yesterday. When I followed the steps my ginger chicken tasted like the real deal

Principles of Chinese Cooking

Preheat the wok (before you put the oil in).

Season the oil (with whole pieces of garlic and sometimes ginger root, which you remove when you add the food to be cooked).

Symmetry of cut (all pieces must be cut the same size and shape).

Have all ingredients cut and sauces mixed before you cook.

Use very high heat and cook fast.
http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2005/09...t-chinese.html

Instead of using a wok, I use a deep flat pan so that the heat is better utilized. You will have to be more careful with oil splattering though.

ETA: do you scramble the eggs first and put it aside and then add it again at the end? That also helps keeping the pieces separate instead of having this big glop of we rice mass.

My husband makes great fried rice. He says that the secret is cooking all the veggies and eggs separately and only putting them together at the very end.

Try this recipe. It's actually fried quinoa, but tastes just as good:
