  Categories: Oriental
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lg Fresh pineapple                          -(OR Green Beans),
       2 c  Cooked long-grain white rice             -trimmed and diced
       1 oz Chinese dried mushrooms             2    Eggs
       1 sm Onion; finely chopped               2 tb Dark soy sauce
       2 tb Oil, preferably peanut              1 tb Fish sauce (optional)
     1/4 lb Chinese long beans             
  
   CAREFULLY CUT OFF and save the pineapple top, leaving about 1-inch of the
   pineapple under the leaves. Scoop out the inside fruit leaving the skin of
   the pineapple whole to use as a bowl for the fried rice. Coarsely chop the
   pineapple meat. Soak the dried mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes until
   they are soft. Squeeze the excess liquid from the mushrooms and remove and
   discard their stems. Cut the caps into small dice. Heat a wok or large
   frying pan until it is hot. Then add the oil and wait until it is almost
   smoking. Add the mushrooms, onions, beans and stir-fry for one minute. Mix
   in the cooked rice and stir-fry it for one minute. Add the eggs, soy sauce
   and fish sauce and continue to stir-fry for five minutes over high heat.
   Add the chopped pineapple and continue to stir-fry for about two minutes.
   Scoop the mixture into the hollowed-out pineapple shell, replace the top
   and serve the remaining rice on a platter.
