Thai Fried Rice (Wok Version)

We liked the aromatic flavor of jasmine rice, but long-grain white or basmati works, too. It's important to use chilled rice (which can be made up to a day ahead of time). A good Thai fish sauce was essential; at Milk Street we use Red Boat. Pork belly is traditional in this recipe, but that can be hard to find in the U.S. Pancetta worked well as a substitute; it has the right amount of salt and fat. Plain bacon will do the job, too, but avoid smoked bacon.

Tip

Don’t use hot or warm rice. The fried rice will turn out clumpy and gummy.
