Pineapple Baked Rice (Main Course for Chinese New Year)
1 cup Thai jasmine rice
¾ cup water
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 link Chinese sausage
¼ cup finely chopped carrot
¼ cup finely chopped onion
¼ cup green peas
¼ cup corn
Rinse jasmine rice and place in a rice cooker with water. Cook rice according to manufacturer’s instructions, 15 to 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Cut pineapple in half lengthwise. Cut out flesh, leaving a thin layer on the skin. Chop 1/2 cup of the flesh; place in a bowl. Reserve remaining flesh for another use. Place pineapple ‘bowls’ on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in beaten eggs; cook until set, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cut into small pieces. Use a paddle to fluff the cooked rice.
Cook and stir Chinese sausage in a separate, dry skillet until fat renders, about 5 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl, reserving fat in the skillet.
Stir remaining 2 tablespoons oil into the skillet used to cook the sausage. Heat it until you can feel the heat above the skillet. Stir in carrot for 1 minute. Add onion, peas, and corn; stir-fry until onion softens, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1/2 of the rice; stir well to combine. Mix in remaining rice. Add egg pieces and sausage slices. Mix in pineapple cubes evenly.
Transfer fried rice to the pineapple bowls. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 15 minutes.
