This was a pleasant surprise! I thought it would be good but it's really terrific. I used thyme and cashews instead of peanuts as I was using them in another dish as well. My pineapple was pretty sweet so I didn't need to add the honey. Really enjoyed this delightfully unusual dish - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
- oil (for frying)
- 12 ounces peeled fresh pineapple, cored and cut into chuncks
- 1 onion, chopped into wedges
- 3 -4 teaspoons fresh rosemary or 3 -4 teaspoons thyme, chopped
- 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
- 1 teaspoon honey (only necessary if the pineapple is too tart)
- 12 ounces green cabbage, chopped
- salt and pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat about a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add the pineapple chunks to the hot oil, stirring so they don't burn ( you do want the pineapple to brown slightly).
- Add the onion, herbs and peanuts and fry for 2 more minutes. Taste the pineapple and add the honey if you need to at this time.
- Toss in the cabbage and sprinkle on a little salt and pepper. Stir for about 4-6 minutes until the cabbage is linghtly cooked. Then serve with rice.
