I didn't use ginger since we had none on hand, and i doubled up on the red pepper. Other than that I followed it exactly and it turned out well. I added some cooked and diced chicken near the end to make it a full meal. I've never been much into fried rice, but I will make this one again. Gotta love a simple recipe like this!!!

This is very good, a nice balance of flavors. I added a couple of scrambled eggs. I served this with a teriyaki marinated pork tenderloin, and it was very nice together. I chopped the leftover meat and added it to the leftover rice for the next day. Yummy!

This was our first attempt at home made fried rice and it turned out really well. We made exactly as directed, although we would definitely suggest adding more garlic and ginger. It isn't too spicy at all, as I have a highly sensitive dislike for the hot stuff, but I could easily handle the 1/8 teaspoon, and maybe even more We added a pound of medium cooked shrimp to our dish and it was great. I can't wait to make it again and try some variations.

What great fried rice! This is so simple, but has terrific flavour. The crushed pineapple adds a bit of sweetness that goes so nicely with the spice and salt. I often make fried rice similar to this with mushrooms and green pepper, but somehow this has a lot more flavour. I have served it with chicken and with spicy stir fried beef strips. It went great with both! I will use this recipe again and again!

Deeeeelicious! Lots of flavors of ginger, garlic, sweet and just the right amount of salty. Pairs great with Emra's Pineapple Chicken (Emra's Pineapple Chicken). Added the green onions along with the pineapple.

We did not think the rice was too spicy at all, in fact, my family loved it. My husband has requested I make this often whenever we have chinese food night.

Sorry, maybe it was something I did but we did not care for this at all. The amount of soy sauce made it so salty we could not even eat it. I threw away a lot of food tonight. I doubt I would try this again.

I don't really like rice, but in an attempt to eat healthier i tried this recipe. It was great. I didn't even add the pineapple because it tasted good without. Cheap, Quick and Good... can't get much better than that!

Yummy rice! I served this with roasted pork loin and it was a fabulous combination. I made it as written, but I put my green onions right into the rice mixture and sliced some extra for garnish. Thanx for a new idea for a rice side dish. We'll be eating this again.

We love fried rice, especially on the weekends with an easy over egg right over the top of it all. I will admit though, I haven't tried it with pineapple yet, I will give it a go this weekend!
