Great to see you, BT! You've been away far too long

It kind of acts like pre-cooked leftover rice that way, and the rice is fluffy and separate rather than sticking together in the final dish.
I thought the same thing!

I found this in the grocery this morning, just enough to satisfy my curiosity!

Wow Bucky..seeing you here again was worth getting up this morning!!!!!

Your recipe sounds great Kgirl, and I love Spam too.
Dawg recently turned me on to pineapple in fried rice. Have you ever done that? It sure would fit the theme of your dish.

WHAT? No pineapple? Being a native Hawaiian, is that blasphemy?? I love the recipe and love the salty taste of Spam. Although my wife does not like pineapple, I love the sweet and sour flavor of fried rice with that fruit in it.

By the way Kgirl, I've been meaning to tell you we have a little Hawaiian Barbeque place here and we love it. Their plate lunches are really good, and authentic.

Check out the menu...

WOWZER Kayelle!
This place seems like a spin off from the very popular L&L BBQ franchaise that originated on Oahu.

Oh my gravy all over my two scoops rice! (that's OMG! in my world )
There needs to be a drooling emoticon!

Pineapple wasn't cultivated commercially until the early 1900's.
It's very expensive in the supermarkets there.
You don't find too many folks there eating pineapple, really.
Me, I can only eat a little of it every so often, it's doesn't agree with me.
But yeah, the sweet & sour play would be nice.

So if you ever get over here in my neck of the woods kgirl, I can meet you there for lunch.

Yep, it's just like the place you mentioned where we have had great authentic food on Kauai.

Yep, I know for sure you can't buy a $2.00 pineapple there, like I do here.
I love them myself and always have one on hand for grilling.

hawaii, recipe, rice

'Hawaiian' Fried Rice Wow, I had to think about this one. I just, make it. No recipe, just, MAKE IT. Fried Rice is something I learned to make from my SIL (DH's sister). Every time that we all went to the beach for the day, she would bring some sort of meat to grill and fried rice. My BIL would grill the meat on his little hibachi and there'd be other goodies to nibble on after body surfing for the afternoon (I shouldn't go there, it makes me homesick). So to me, that's beach food. Here we are, years later in the middle of the desert and I NEED to have little pieces of home every so often. [ATTACH]21726[/ATTACH] [SIZE="3"][U]Hawaiian Fried Rice[/U][/SIZE] Start off with leftover steamed white rice (we use Calrose medium grain rice, Jasmine Rice would do nicely and more popular in grocery stores), the drier the better, I leave our pot from the night before on the counter, lid off to speed up this process. Add whatever 'goodies' you may have leftover, as much as you like of: Scrambled eggs or that omelet you didn't finish, diced up Diced and cooked Breakfast Sausage (we use Linguica or Portuguese Sausage)** Diced and cooked SpamŪ, very crisp** Green onions, sliced on an angle White onions, chopped and sauteed If you must, frozen peas and carrots Soy Sauce Sesame Oil (I know some folks who also add about 1-2 Tbsp. Oyster Sauce) Toasted Sesame Seeds Preheat a large fry pan, or Wok if you have it, with some neutral oil like canola over medium-high heat. Once you see wisps of smoke coming off the pan, you gotta move fast Throw in the rice, stir it around until it's hot Add in your goodies, stir again Pour in enough soy sauce to just color the rice, not floating in soy sauce, that's too much Stir; cover and cook for a few minutes Dish it up with a drizzle of Sesame oil and Toasted Sesame Seeds, maybe some more Green Onions on top. **Cook’s Note - the SpamŪ and the Linguica really make it, or some leftover Teriyaki Chicken, Bacon, Hot Dogs, really whatever you have leftover and like, throw it in. I suppose you could use brown calrose rice as well.** Try this in the morning with eggs and the breakfast meat of your choice, like more fried SpamŪ is nice.
