I think Greg can probably eat Pineapple Fried Rice at least once a week and not get tired of it. Me, probably about every other week but I still love it! It's also such a quick and easy meal as long as you have all the ingredients on hand. I just love the way my kitchen smells whenever I made an Asian dish! It's the combination of all the different sauces mixed with the garlic. This time I also added Fish Sauce, which is probably one of my favorite Asian condiments. This meal definitely hits all the flavor components from the spicy chili flakes to the salty pork and finally the sweet pineapples. And the left-overs just get better!
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 c onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 green onion, sliced, plus more for garnish
1/4 tsp chili flakes
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 c BBQ Pork, chopped
1/2 c pineapple chunks, slightly drained
2 c day old white rice
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp fish sauce
1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the vegetable oil. When the oil shimmers, add the onion, garlic, ginger, green onion and chili flakes. Sauté until tender and golden, about 5 minutes. Add egg and scramble for 1 minute.
2. Stir in the red bell pepper and the chicken and sauté until the pepper starts to soften. Add the rice and pineapple and mix with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps. Stir-fry until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Stir in the sesame oil and fish sauce. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
