I remembered my sister having made something similar to this a few times, and since I'm still trying to finish off a bunch of cilantro, and because pineapple and teriyaki go hand in hand, I thought it would be a nice accompaniment to this Steak Teriyaki. Turned out to be a great choice! :)
1.5 c rice
3 c water
4 T butter
rice wine vinegar
zest and juice from 1 lime
salt and pepper
fresh chopped cilantro
1-2 scalions, sliced thin
1-2 jalapenos, fine dice
yellow, orange, and/or red bell pepper, fine dice
Bring your rice, water, and butter to a boil, stirring a few times until the water level goes just below the rice and bubbles start to form. Add a little salt and pepper, lower the heat, cover and let cook until tender.
When the rice is just about done, add a splash of rice vinegar, the lime juice, lime zest, jalapenos, pineapple, and scallions, letting them cook for a few minutes.
So you've still got a little crunch for a variety of textures, and so your cilantro doesn't wilt, stir in the remaining ingredients just before serving.
