Cooked with hoisin sauce, sweet pineapple, Genoa salami, and lean pork tenderloin, this flavorful fried rice will soon be your favorite go-to dinner. We highly suggest using a blend like Long Grain and Jasmine Rice, made especially for Fried Rice recipes, because the long grains remain separate when cooked, which helps to give the rice a looser and less mushy texture containing less starch.
Cook the rice according to package directions. Let cool completely and refrigerate.
Whisk together the hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and sesame oil; set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok set over medium-high heat; cook pork, salt and pepper, stirring for 3 to 5 minutes or until starting to brown. Stir in salami, red pepper and pineapple. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes.
Stir in the rice and green onions; cook, stirring often, for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in sauce; bring to boil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until rice is heated through, stirring frequently.
Divide among 4 bowls. Sprinkle with remaining cashews, cilantro and chili pepper.

Why does the recipe say to let cool completely and refrigerate? For best results, when preparing fried rice recipes, the rice should ideally be made beforehand and chilled completely in the refrigerator to make sure that all of the moisture has been absorbed so that when it is added back into the skillet or wok, the extra moisture does not make the rice mushy.
For fried rice, a skillet or wok can be used. However, for best results, the recommendation is to use a wok because the rice and other ingredients cook more evenly and in less time.
