Sweet and Sour Pork Fried Risotto

I was curious about a risotto dish for some time now since I heard about it on TV bunch of times [especially on that Gordon Ramsey's Hell Kitchen show], heard people talk about it but I never seen it or tried it. I googled for it and pretty much got that its a creamy rice. I figured that I can make my own risotto, and to make it simpler, I could just get the prepared ingredients in the local Chinese and mix them together on the wok. For $5.95 I got the Lunch Special Sweet and Sour Pork, with Pork Fried Rice and Small Chicken Noodle Soup. The local Chinese place makes the best fried rices compared to other Chinese places that I visited, and I mean it. I tried making my own fried rice but I never got nowhere near close as any Chinese place makes it, and ended throwing out my own home-made fried rice. So I figured that I can combine the Pork Fried Rice with Chicken Noodle Soup, and let the water air-out, then add some Sweet and Sour [red] sauce and let it thicken up with the rice, and there I would have my own risotto. And so I made it like that and it turned out pretty good; I hate plain white rice and pretty much any other kind of rice that is wet and/or sticky, but this "risotto" turned out to be very edible and to my taste. I knew that it would turn out well because many times before, I ate pork fried rice and kinda mixed-in the red sauce into it. So there you go! I also added some corn oil to the wok before I threw in the pork fried rice into it.
