Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 4 cups day old jasmine rice, cooked
  • 4 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 4 tbsp. white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 lb. ground pork (can substitute ground chicken or turkey)
  • 2 shallots, finely diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped lemongrass or lemongrass paste

Instructions:

  • In a small bowl combine fish sauce, sugar and black pepper. Stir to combine and then set aside while you prep the other ingredients. 
  • In a skillet heat olive and sesame oils over medium heat. Add carrot, garlic, lemongrass and shallots. Saute for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Add ground pork to the skillet. Using a rubber spatula, crumble pork into really small pieces as it cooks. 
  • In a small separate bowl whisk together your eggs.
  • Once pork is cooked through, push it to the side of the skillet and add eggs to the empty part of the skillet and scramble until set. 
  • Mix the eggs into pork mixture. 
  • Add day old rice and mix until rice is completely mixed in.
  • Pour the sauce all over the rice and stir together until every single grain of rice is coated in sauce.
  • Turn off the heat and add pineapple, salt (plus more to taste), cashews, green onions and cilantro. Stir until combined.
  • Serve immediately
