Pineapple-Bacon Fried Rice with Ponzu Sauce

I had no trouble finding Ponzu sauce today.  I only had a selection of one at this store, but I look forward to seeing the different types available next time I’m at the Asian market.

This is my take on a recipe I watched Ming Tsai make the other day:

Pineapple-Bacon Fried Rice

  • 2 slices of bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 tbsp organic ponzu
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • oil

In wok or skillet, fry bacon until crisp, remove to paper towel.  Remove all but 1 tbsp of bacon fat from pan and saute onions, garlic and ginger.  Add egg and scramble.  Add rice, ponzu and bacon and toss until heated through.  Serves 2

I used my skillet.  I like it because I can separate items to the side and cook in the middle before mixing it all together.  Can I just say I am now a fan of Ponzu sauce?  Where have you been all my life?  Good stuff.

  1. I really enjoyed this recipe. First time the rice was actually not dry. It didn’t say when to add the pineapple, so I just did that in the last step. My only complaint is with the amount. I doubled the recipe and it was just enough for 2. Maybe it’s because I used white rice.
