Weeknight Fried Rice

I kept putting off making this recipe because I'm not the world's biggest rice fan. Once I did make it, I had to wonder, why I put it off so long.


Ingredients List:

4 tablespoons Olive Oil (divided)

2 cups Rice

3 cups Water

1/2 cup Pineapple Juice (reserved from can)

1 teaspoon Salt

4 cups Ham (cubed)

2 cups Pineapple Tidbits (drained)

1/2 cup Green Onions

1 cup Frozen Peas or Peas and Carrots (whichever you prefer, or have on hand)

4 tablespoons Soy Sauce

2 Eggs (scrambled and set aside)


  1. Add 2 tablespoons of the Oil to a saucepan over medium heat.

  2. Add the rice and cook to toast for a few minutes.

  3. Stir in the Water, Pineapple Juice, and Salt.

  4. Bring to a boil.

  5. Reduce heat to the lowest setting and cover the pan.

  6. Cook the rice until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is fluffy; about 15 minutes.

  7. In a second large, non-stick saute pan, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of Oil over medium-high heat.

  8. Add the ham and cook, stirring often, until it starts to brown.

  9. Add the Pineapple, Green Onion, and Peas.

  10. Cook for 1 minute.

  11. Add to the cooked Rice.

  12. Add Soy Sauce and stir well to combine all the ingredients.

  13. Add the Scrambled Egg.

  14. Stir to combine.

  15. Serve immediately.
