Pineapple Fried Rice

Pineapple Fried Rice created by Karen Elizabeth

Made with the ingredients I had on hand - simple to make, and kids love it. If using eggs, for 3 cups of brown rice you'll want at least 8 eggs (I initially did 4 because I already had chicken - and ended up not even seeing any eggs in the final product!) My friend, who prefers a saltier fried rice thought it a bit bland so I added some Soy Vey marinade while frying. You can find it at your local grocer. I read from other reviewers on other Food.com fried rice recipes that white pepper makes the dish, so I added that - and saw no diff. If you don't have white pepper I don't think it will kill you to use regular black pepper. I have also seen people add red pepper flakes to add some kick to it - I leave it out because I don't eat spicy foods. Instead of chicken I'd use Chinese sausage if I could - it's sweeter, and kids love it. Problem is that it's really oily - and we try to avoid pork. Adjust the ingredients to your taste and enjoy!

ingredients

directions

  • Cut onion into slices then chop into small squares. Fry on small saucepan in 1 tablespoon butter for 15 minutes on low heat until onions turn light brown, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
  • Add brown sugar and dash of pepper and dried oregano (if you have it), and let sit for another 5 minutes before turning off heat.
  • In a wok or large skillet, add 1 tablespoon oil until it lightly smokes before adding the eggs and chopped green onions. Scramble the eggs.
  • Add pineapple, oyster sauce, garlic powder (I didn't have any fresh garlic on hand). Add diced chicken (or pretty much any meat of your choice) and stir evenly.
  • Add rice, sugar, soy sauce (I use the Maggi Seasoning brand that comes in a square bottle - much cheaper at Asian markets, as opposed to buying it at American chains e.g. Vons or Ralphs, where they jack the price up almost double).
  • Now add in the caramelized onions you've prepared in the separate saucepan and mix it thoroughly into your rice and squeeze the lime, then mix.
  • Add celery (I tend to add it toward the end to keep its crispness)
  • Add white pepper and salt to taste. I didn't add much salt because I figured the soy sauce and oyster sauce would be enough. Enjoy!

    I did halve the recipe, and I stuck to white rice, since we prefer it. Otherwise a very nice fried rice, my only suggestion that I would have enjoyed a bit more colour. Incidentally I used the eggs to make a separate omelette, which I then chopped into the rice, again, personal preference. Good recipe, thank you, made for Spring PAC 2014

    It took some doing, but I made 1/3 of a batch for just the 2 of us & we loved it, but then I'm a big on combining fruit & meat, especially chicken! Really enjoyed the pineapple in this one! Another keeper of a recipe, for sure! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
