My mom has an ancient, handwritten cookbook of my grandmother's recipes, and there is a ham and pineapple dish over rice that's similar to this (without the beans). It's soooooooo good.

I would not add the ham, but this sounds interestingly good. I'm on a bit of a budget right now, so I wouldn't try it now in case I didn't like it.

Ew. Not on pizza, not in a buffet line, and not fried rice in my home. Pineapple + ham = narsty.Seriously? If you want to cook pineapple, put it in a yellow curry or something. And definitely don't use canned.
