Pork-and-Pineapple Fried Rice

Most restaurants make pork fried rice with generic pieces of barbecued meat; Andrew Carmellini uses both seared ground pork and sweet, aromatic Chinese sausage in his playful version. As an alternative to Chinese sausage–which is now available at many Costco stores–substitute thick matchsticks of lean maple-cured bacon.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 ounces ground pork
  • 3 (5 ounces) small Chinese sausages, thinly sliced, see Note
  • 3 scallions, white parts minced and green parts sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 hot red chile, seeded and minced
  • 4 cups cold cooked jasmine rice or other long-grain white rice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup finely diced fresh pineapple

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the soy sauce with the hoisin and vinegar. Heat a wok or large skillet. Add the oil and heat until smoking. Add the pork and Chinese sausages and cook over high heat, stirring, until the pork is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add the minced scallion whites, ginger, garlic and chile and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the rice, breaking up any lumps with your hands as you add it to the wok, and stir-fry until heated through and lightly browned in spots. Stir the hoisin-soy sauce, add it to the wok and stir-fry until nearly absorbed, about 2 minutes. Stir in the scallion greens, cilantro and pineapple. Transfer the fried rice to bowls and serve.
Note: Dry, slightly sweet, pork-based Chinese sausages are available at Asian markets.
