I'm having trouble getting fried rice to not stick. Last time I cooked friend rice (45 minutes ago), I was just doing something super simple: left over rice and stir fry from two nights ago.
I heated up the wok on high until smoking faintly, then turned down the burner and pulled off the wok for a few second to cool down. Added avocado oil and in went the rice immediately. No sticking so far. Even was able to shake the wok and the rice glided effortlessly across the bottom. Turned up the heat to high to see if I couple keep it going. Had some light sticking, but not too bad. Even managed a flip without spilling rice everywhere, to my wife's surprise.
Then I put in the left over stir fry, which had some soy/oyster/fish sauce. Bam! instant sticking, EVERYWHERE. the rice just caked on HARD.
Editing to add - I only used about 1 cup of rice and equal amount of leftover meats/veggies.
