Howard's Pineapple Fried Rice
Fried rice is a traditional Chinese dish that comes in many different forms. What's essential is to stir-fry the fried rice with egg and soy sauce. In this particular recipe the saltiness of fried rice is balanced by the sweetness of pineapple, while also adding a layer of heat with Trini Pepper Sauce. A perfect recipe for those casual dinners with friends and family.
- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce
- 1 cup of chopped green onions
- 2 red bell peppers chopped
- 1 cup of cashews chopped
- 4 eggs beaten
- 4 cloves of garlic pureed or minced
- 4 cups of cooked white rice (left over rice is preferred, because fresh rice is too soft and watery)
- 1 cup of pineapple
- 1 tablespoon of Hot Trini Pepper Sauce
- salt to taste
- add lime to taste
- cilantro for garnish
- In a large wok (or skillet) on medium to high heat combine the coconut oil, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and green onions.
- Next add the red bell peppers and cashews, mix until uniform then cover and let cook for 2 minutes.
- Gentilly scramble the eggs by scraping the cooked bottom layer into the red pepper mix, allowing the uncooked eggs to fill in and come in contact with the wok. Do this until your eggs are no longer runny.
- Add in the pureed garlic and Hot Trini Pepper Sauce, stir until completely mixed in.
- The rice is next. This may require two utensils, I used a turner and a spoon to completely incorporate the rice.
- Final step is to add in the pineapple and cook until it is warm.
Serve hot, add salt and squeeze lime over the fried rice to taste. Garnish with cilantro and don't be afraid to add some more Trini Pepper Sauce!
