Hawaiian Fried Rice With Spam (Or Ham)

I’ve always loved fried rice, so finding a recipe for a Hawaiian version just made my day. The pineapple and Spam (or ham) make a delicious sweet and salty combination.

Cook on the stove or in the Instant Pot and let cool:

2 c. uncooked rice

Instant Pot directions: Add 2 c. rice and 3 c. water to the pot, cook at high pressure for 5 minutes, quick release.

Heat a wok and stir occasionally until browned:

1 can Spam or 12 oz. ham, diced

Add and stir fry until tender:

1 onion, diced

1 bell pepper, chopped, or 1 c. frozen peas

Push veggies to the side and scramble:

3 eggs

Add in the cooled rice and the following, seasoning to taste, and heating through:

1 c. pineapple tidbits or chunks, drained

2-4 T. soy sauce

I consider Hawaiian fried rice to be a meal on its own, but it can easily be paired with other Chinese dishes.
