Spicy Pineapple Rice

I wanted to do a little something different with my rice today.  Thought a pineapple rice would be a tasty side for the Mahi-Mahi I was fixing for dinner.  I added a spicy kick and a bit of soy along with some brown sugar and orange juice for a sweet and sour spicy asian flair.

Spicy Pineapple Rice

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 can pineapple tidbits – 8 o.z. – drained (reserving about 1/4 cup juice)
  • 1/4 cup reserved pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 2 green onions – thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste

In medium sauce pan bring broth to a boil; add rice and cook for about 10 minutes.  In small sauce pan combine remaining ingredients except green onions and simmer for about 5 minutes; stir mixture into partially cooked rice and continue cooking for about 10 more minutes over low heat.  Stir in green onions add salt and pepper if desired and serve.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
