  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Rinse the rice and put it in the rice cooker with 3/4 cup of water, and turn the rice cooker on.
  2. Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise. If the pineapple is small, cut 1/4 of it for the lid and use the other 3/4 for the bowl. Use a knife to cut out the pineapple. Take 1/2 cup of the pineapple and cut it into fine cubes and save the rest for something else later. Put the pineapple bowls in the oven at 300 degree for 5 minutes, this will release the flavor of the pineapple.
  3. Heat up a frying pan without oil, then stir the Chinese sausage until the oil comes out. Save the oil for later.
  4. Beat the eggs evenly, and fry them in a non-stick pan with 2T of oil. Cut into small pieces and set it aside.
  5. When the rice is done, use a paddle to fluff the rice.
  6. Add 2T oil with the oil from the sausage and heat it up until you can feel the heat above the frying pan. Add the carrot first and stir it for one minute. Put in the onions, peas and corn. Stir fry until the onion become soft.
  7. Add half of the rice, stirring evenly until all the other ingredients are mixed with the rice, then add the rest of the rice. Mix everything evenly before putting in the Chinese sausage. Add the eggs. Finally, put in the pineapple cubes and mix everything evenly.
  8. Transfer the fried rice into the pineapple bowls. Cover it with foil (or the top part of pineapple if you cut 1/4 of the pineapple off) and bake at 350 degree for 15 minutes. Then you are ready to serve! Enjoy!

The taste is fine, but I was left with so much filling and no where near enough pineapples to stuff it into! And it's just not the same without the pineapple flavour.

I made this last night exactly as the recipe instructed. It was a HUGE hit. and a very visually entertaining dish to serve too. For pineapple lovers, I'd suggest maybe doubling the 1/2 cup of p...
