1 tablespoon peanut oil

1 onion, chopped fine

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1-inch knob ginger, peeled and finely chopped

2 green onions, sliced, plus more for garnish

1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped

4 ounces finely chopped ham steak

1 cup finely chopped pineapple

4 cups day old white or brown rice

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the peanut oil. When the oil shimmers, add the onion, garlic, ginger, and green onions. Saute until tender and golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the red bell pepper and the ham steak and saute until the pepper starts to soften. Add the rice and pineapple and mix with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps. Stir-fry until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Mix in the sesame oil, and the soy sauce. Taste and season with salt, if necessary. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
