HAWAIIAN FRIED RICE

 

I love to cook, but if I can be out of the kitchen half the time, I’m all for it. One of my favorite cooking hacks is freezing steamed rice. I usually cook twice as much as I can eat in one meal, and save the other half for stir-fry.

Hawaiian Fried Rice is quick and easy to make and also personalized. As with most fried rice recipes, this is a great way to use the protein and vegetables we have on hand. Juicy pineapples and diced ham are must-haves for a tropical flavor, but carrots, bamboo shoots, chicken, and BBQ pork are also good additions.

Cooking Tips

Get all the ingredients ready as this fried rice is a very quick process to make.
Use a wok or a wide pan with high sides so that the ingredients are well distributed without spilling the rice and that the rice is well browned.
Add liquid seasonings, such as soy sauce, sparingly so that the fried rice does not become soft due to excess moisture. Use salt to adjust flavor as needed.
Cook the eggs by making a well in the center of the fried rice, or separately in another saucepan, and stir in at the last minute or two. Cook them until they are set and still slightly moist, as they will continue to cook if added to fried rice.
