Pineapple Fried Rice

1 ripe pineapple, cut into pieces (I’m sure there are videos on how to do this.)
4 cups cooked long grain rice, such as jasmine, chilled
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, finely diced
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
3 tablespoons Thai fish sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
3 green onions, thinly sliced

1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet.  Add onion and cook until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.  Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

2. Add remaining tablespoon oil, then add rice.  Cook, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes over high heat.  Then add 1 cup pineapple and fry 2 to 3 minutes more.  (Reserve rest of pineapple for munching.) 

3.  Add fish sauce and sugar.  Toss until ingredients are well combined and rice is heated thoroughly, about 5 minutes.  Add green onions and toss to combine before serving. 

Pineapple Fried Rice

This recipe is from  I pared it down a bit since I didn’t want to add the longbeans or tomatoes.  This rice was super delicious and we all enjoyed it.  I do wish I had made a bit more!
