Coconut Rice and Pineapple

Pat Duran


I've been on a rice kick all week.
This sweet and savory rice side dish is crunchy and is great drizzled with soy sauce,if desired.
A very nice dish to serve with any of your pork recipes, and barbecue kabobs.

How to Make Coconut Rice and Pineapple


  1. Rinse the rice several times until the water runs clear. Drain the rice. Cook in a rice cooker using the broth, milk and reserved pineapple juice.
    Stove top method:
    If you do not have a rice cooker- make on stove top:
    In a medium pot, over high heat, add the rice, broth, juice and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to low and cover with tight fitting lid; let cook for 20 minutes. Turn off heat, and without opening the lid, let it sit for another 10 minutes to finish steaming.
  2. Fluff the rice with a fork and mix in the pineapple,soy sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil. Top with chopped scallions and any of the garnishes. Drizzle with a bit of soy sauce , if desired.
