Tips For Making The Best Pineapple Fried Rice
- It’s important that you rinse your rice until clear to reduce the starch,
- Use Day Old Rice- Freshly cooked rice is too sticky because it has extra moisture, compared to day-old rice which has dried out some. So the next time you make rice, prepare double the amount so you can save some in the refrigerator for making fried rice the next day.
- You can use fresh pineapple or canned.
- Note that you can also bake the marinated tofu in an oven preheated at 400 F, transfer marinated tofu cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway.
How To Cook Pineapple Fried Rice
