Griddle Recipes Fried Rice with Bacon and Pineapple. Fried rice is a staple of Chinese cooking that accompanies just about any dish available in a restaurant. The dish is versatile because the added ingredients can grant just about every combination of flavors imaginable. The following has a delectable combination of sweet and savory.
Fried rice is first recorded as being cooked in China in the Sui Dynasty, late sixth and early seventh century AD. The dish became especially popular in the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries. Fried rice was originally developed as a way to reuse leftover boiled rice, but currently, it is a choice alternative to the plain variety in Chinese cooking.
One cup of whole-grain brown rice
Two tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil
One-half cup of diced pineapple
Four slices of bacon
One-half cup sliced green onion
One clove minced garlic
Two lightly beaten eggs
A quarter cup of soy sauce
Black pepper to taste
Cook the brown rice and then set aside.
Oil the griddle and set to high heat.
Cook the bacon until it is crispy. Crumble and set aside.
Sautee the green onion and garlic on the griddle for one to two minutes.
Add the cooked rice, bacon, pineapple, soy sauce, and pepper.
Make a well in the middle of the rice mixture. Beat the eggs thoroughly and pour into the well. Continue to heat until the eggs begin to solidify. Then mix the eggs with the rice mixture, cook all together, and then scoop up with a spatula. Plate and serve.
Fried rice can be served as a side dish with just about everything and not just Chinese main dishes. You can try fried rice, for example, along with grilled steak as well as more Asian fare like General Tso’s Chicken. The dish also works pretty well as the main course. Iced tea is a great drink to go along with fried rice.
