One of our favorite places to go here in Oklahoma City is a Thai restaurant called Panang 2. Their curries and fried rice dishes are incredibly delicious and plentiful and we always take a large portion home for lunch the next day. Mr. Wonderful almost always orders the pineapple fried rice and so last week I took a try at making it myself, and while maybe not exactly like the restaurants, I thought it was pretty doggone good.
I served it inside of the pineapple halves after I scooped scooped them out and diced up the pineapple to mix into the rice. As you dig down into the bottom, we scraped the remaining pineapple sides with our spoons and the juice made those last few bites heavenly!
This is a rather large recipe, but if you’re going to go to all that trouble, you’ll want leftovers. so I made a larger recipe than what we can handle. Even though you won’t have a hollowed out pineapple the next day, this recipe leftovers will transport you to another place the next day as well.
It’s like a tropical vacation right here in Oklahoma!
