I think it works out best when you stick to just a few ingredients besides the rice. My favorites are:

-snap peas, pineapple and toasted cashews. or...
-celery, corn, sesame seeds. or...
whatever veggies you have laying around.

The tastiest stir-frying oil is sesame. You should get the pan really hot, and dice your ingredients small and uniformly. Start with some grated ginger and minced garlic. Once it gets soft, add your vegetables. You want about 1/3 as much of them as you have pre-cooked, plain rice. It turns out best with leftover/day old rice, but you can also make new rice and let it cool down.

Add the rice last and break up any clumps. At this point, you will need to add some extra moisture to make it juicy...soy sauce is the best option. Fried rice is such a fast and yummy dinner option. I love it!
