Heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil on high heat in a non-stick wok or pan until smoky hot. Toss in the mixed vegetables and sauté for about 10 seconds.Add garlic and stir-fry for another minute.

Push all the ingredients to one side of the pan and pour in the beaten eggs. Scramble into small pieces until cooked.

Stir in the rice and break up any large chunks with a spatula while tossing until heated through, around 2 minutes.
Drizzle in soy sauce, fish sauce, mirin and sesame oil, tossing to combine everything evenly. Keep stirring the fried rice until slightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Add salt, black pepper, red chili flakes or even Sriracha to taste.

Personal Notes:
Make the rice the day before or at least make sure the rice has been cooled off completely in the refrigerator before making this rice or it will turn out mushy. this was Olivia's favorite recipe and she could eat bowls of it. I would make this with Teriyaki chicken mostly.
