This is a good recipe although I've tweaked it around to make it just like in our favorite Thai restaurant: add chicken and/or shrimp as well as the ham. I season the chicken with oyster sauce and some cinnamon. We also add cashew nuts and use mixed veggies, not just peas. Our favorite restaurant adds some cherry tomatoes, but we're not whole-tomato-people in our house, so I skip that part, although tomato lovers might find it a good addition. Also, I get pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice, and when I drain the pineapple I DO keep the juice. I then mix up about half of it with the soy sauce and add it to the rice. We rather use a bit more soy sauce and less (or no) salt. And finally, a trick I learned from my mom: I don't use the sesame oil to stir fry. For that I use regular vegetable oil or cooking spray made of real oil. But I do sprinkle sesame oil at the end, for better aroma.
eh, it was ok, but not great. good things-- you can use up your leftovers, and also it is a simple dish to make.
So good! I used jasmine rice and cooked it with coconut milk instead of water. I also substituted shrimp for the ham and added raisins and cashews. Yummy. My husband raved and raved about it- thank you for the recipe!
This was a real hit at our house. I cooked the rice in the rice cooker. I omitted the salt as the soy is very salty. I added yellow and red bell peppers. Very good.
This was very good. When I boiled the rice I added the pineapple juice and a little soy to the water. Also I use ponzu instead of regular soy sauce, and some grape tomatoes, chicken, shrimp and the ham. Make a lot, you'll love the leftovers later.
This was pretty good. I made a few modifications. Chicken instead of ham. Omitted the onions. Twice as much peas and pineapple. Two eggs. And some carrots. A yummy alternative to normal fried rice.
Oh so good! I used chicken, regular onions, and frozen mixed vegetables. Totally scored bonus points with the fiance! Thank you for the recipe.
This was very good. Next time, I will cut back on the amount of soy sauce, skip the sugar, and not drain the pineapple. I may ruin it, but I think it will give me a smoother flavor.
