Chop the char siu (or ham) and leek (or green onion). Cut the lettuce into bite-size pieces.
Beat the eggs in a bowl.
In order to prevent the rice from becoming sticky, preheat a frying pan (or wok) without oil for 1 minute on high heat. Then, add the oil, eggs and cold rice and saute while stiring for 1 minute on high heat.
Add the char siu (or ham), leek (or green onion) and lettuce, and mix while cooking for another minute.
Add the soup stock powder (optional), salt, pepper and soy sauce, and stir on high heat for another minute.
Serve in a dish.
Using sauted lettuce makes this a very unique dish. The combination of crisp lettuce and fried rice is unusual but you will come to love it.
