Exotic Stir Fried Rice w/ Pineapple

I'm pretty sure everyone has eaten fried rice at some point.
The most popular fried rice seems to be pork fried rice. Although pork fried rice can be good- the slight negative is that-

A long time ago- only the people with money in China could afford beef- a.k.a. red meat.
So, long history short, people started to take pork and dye it red to make it more like beef.
You could say it was clever or you could say it was just to satisfy the mind.

Either way, I'd like to share my exotic stir-fried rice with chilled pineapple recipe.
It's still quite simple but fresher and definitely tastier.


2 cups cooked rice (2-3 serving as meal)
2 carrots shredded, then chopped into small pieces
1 medium onion diced small
2 scrambled eggs
small handful snow peas chopped (maybe 10)
3-4 heaping tablespoons of crushed pineapple (added at the end as optional)

Ingredients for sauce:
4 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP ground mustard
1/2 inch grated ginger
2 Tbs molasses


1. cook rice, stir, set aside
2. make sauce, set aside (easy to have ready)
3. scramble eggs, set aside in bowl
4. shred, dice all veggies & fry vegetables
when veggies are almost completely cooked... stir in sauce and 
add cooked rice while mixing it all together, turn the stove off...
5. add crushed pineapples at the end and mix (pineapple is optional)
