Agreed. I'll mince up a little bacon and cook it, pouring off all the fat. Then I'll saute some garlic, ginger, and scallions in a tiny bit of peanut oil, then add some shrimp and meat (beef, pork, or chicken). Then I'll add room temperature cooked rice unclumped into as close to single grains as possible, stir-fry and add some toasted sesame seed oil and low salt soy sauce (which is loaded with salt). When hot and ready to serve, I'll stir in a beaten egg or two and serve.
