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:
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.
