Hawaiian-Style Sausage and Rice

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"I used to work where we had a lot of potluck lunches. I just brought the ingredients, already prepared, a rice cooker, and an electric frying pan. I would start the rice about 20 minutes before lunch and cook the rest in the frying pan while everyone else was uncovering and setting out their dishes. My copy of the recipe is getting so tattered I felt I better archive it. I would sorely miss it if lost."

  1. Bring rice and 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Place sausages into a skillet with 1/2 cup water over medium heat, cover, and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Thinly slice sausages. Combine sausages with onion, green pepper, and celery in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir until vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir tomatoes, beef broth, pineapple, garlic powder, black pepper, and brown sugar into sausage mixture. Cook and stir until brown sugar has dissolved and mixture comes to a simmer. Whisk reserved pineapple juice with cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth. Stir cornstarch mixture into sausage mixture and cook until sauce thickens and turns clear, about 2 minutes. Serve sausage mixture over cooked rice.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use various kinds of sausage, I like Oscar Mayer® little smoked sausages but have used even hot dogs on occasion. The vegetables, too, can be varied and not change the deliciousness of the recipe, as long as you like them.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This looked beautiful on the plate, but I was rather disappointed that it did not have more flavor. The recipe was followed exactly; I guess I was expecting more of a tangy, sweet-sour sauce. ...

Great recipe and easy to put together. I left out the celery since I do not enjoy the taste and used pineapple crush instead of rings. Saved to my favorites!

Definitely a keeper! Will try it with a little rice vinegar the next time.

To MargeGC who wanted a little more zing, how bout adding a couple tablespoons of rice vinegar or a little less other vinegar-any kind should do.

I absolutely loved this recipe. Lots of fresh vegetables so it was a meal in itself. I used smoked turkey sausage to cut down on fat along with a few shrimp. I made it for my parents and they...

I doubled everything but the tomatoes and the onion - my tomatoes were diced and the onion was huge! I used powdered beef bullion and smoked beef ring sausage, I made the rice in the rice coo...

Fabulous! I omitted the tomatoes, substituted 1 cup chopped zoodles instead of the green pepper, and used Pineapple Sausage and fresh pineapple. Yummy yummy yummy!

Easy and good! Might try rice vinegar next time, but very good as written.

I followed the recipe as is, except that I used sweet Italian sausage. Was a great, easy, fast meal. Definitely made the recipe box. Thanks.
