fried rice reheating: it is IMPERATIVE you bring the rice to room temp before attempting ANY kind of re-heating.
the reason the microwave kills it is the steam factor
when your fried rice left overs are at room temp, lubricate your skillet with the spray or grease of choice. i would recommend the PAM type things and then start heating the rice. the sesame oil is a great idea/addition, but it is volatile, so add at last minute, more for flavor than for non-stick purposes. a little goes a long way
don't forget to keep shaking or otherwise moving your rice around in the skillet (cast iron preferred) to keep it from sticking.
