Let’s detour for a brief moment to talk about cauliflower rice. We still eat regular white rice from time to time, but really do enjoy cauliflower rice. When you pan fry it, it gets a little crispy and gets a texture pretty similar to regular rice. Plus, when you use it for a dish like this spicy pineapple cauliflower pork fried rice, you really can’t even tell the difference with the mixture of flavors and textures, so why not add some veggies to your meal? You might as well get a little extra nutrition in your bowl.

You can rice cauliflower a couple of ways. First, and the easiest, is to use a food processor with the grating blade. This is the most no-fuss, no mess way to rice cauliflower. Next, you could use the regular S blade for your food processor and pulse until your cauliflower is grainy. The risk here is over processing, and you’ll end up with a mash instead of rice. Lastly, you can hand grate cauliflower to achieve the rice like texture, but this is the messiest option.

For all of you who don’t even want to fuss at all with ricing cauliflower, you can buy pre-riced cauliflower at Trader Joe’s in either the frozen or the fresh produce sections. We use our food processor or the pre-riced stuff from Trader Joe’s to save time and effort. Do what works for you!

Ingredients

  • 4 green onions - diced
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple - cut into small cubes
  • 1 small head cauliflower - riced (about 5-6 cups which is equivalent to a bag from Trader Joe's)
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions 

  • Cut up green onions and pineapple. Rice cauliflower in a food processor with a grating attachment or with a hand grater.
  • In a large pan over medium-high heat, add pork to brown. Season with salt and pepper. Break up into small bits and cook until it has developed a brown crust, about 8 minutes. Drain fat if desired, reserving at least 1 tbsp in the pan.
  • Add cauliflower rice to pan. Add pineapple, green onions, coconut aminos, fish sauce, cayenne, and any additional salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until the rice begins to soften.
  • Crack the eggs into the pan and stir them around to scramble. Continue to stir until the eggs are fully cooked, 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve! Enjoy!

    • PERFECT!! Love that! Justin’s mom raises pigs too, so we also eat a lot of pork! Glad you are already a red boat fish sauce fan. It’s so good! Hope you enjoy this recipe. You should try our pulled pork sliders too, since you’re a pork fan! Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  • I made this tonight, but had had enough pork recently. So I subbed diced chicken breast that I tossed with onion powder, garlic powder and arrowroot. Sauteed the chicken in batches to get some browning on them; they were so moist and tender! I also doubled the recipe so I’d have some for lunches this week – except only 50% more cayenne, which was enough spice for me. I wish I had NOT doubled the fish sauce though. I had a bowl for dinner; it was very filling. Looking forward to eating it for lunches this week. Thanks.
