Tool Used: A Wok
Peel the pineapple, remove the tough center core. Chop half of the pineapple flesh in chunks and set aside.
Beat the eggs in a bowl and set aside.
In a large wok with lots of wiggle room, put some coconut oil in and tilt it a bit so it coats the wok. Fry the beaten egg in it until it solidifies. When done take the egg out and set aside breaking the cooked eggs in pieces with a fork.
Add another tablespoon of oil to the wok and fry the chopped garlic. Fry for about a minute then add the cooked steam rice. Keep stirring just so the rice don't stick if not using a non-stick wok.
Add the fried egg, the pineapple chunks, salt and pepper or soy sauce to taste. Keep stirring until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Remove from heat and scoop some in a pretty plate and enjoy. It's really an easy pineapple fried rice recipe. Try it and make your own version.
