  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil divided
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups Sugardale Simple Carve Boneless Smoked Ham chopped
  • 1 cup pineapple tidbits drained (use juice for cooking rice)
  • 1/3 cup green onions chopped
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce


  • Add one tablespoon of the oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add the rice and cook to toast for a few minutes. Stir in the water, pineapple juice and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to the lowest setting and cover the pan. Cook the rice until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is fluffy, about 15 minutes.
  • In a large, non-stick sauté pan, add the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the ham and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown. 
  • Add the pineapple, green onion and soy sauce and cook for one minute.
  • Add the rice and stir well, cooking for a couple of minutes to coat the rice with the oil and soy sauce. Serve immediately.
