  2. Add the onion and saute until transparent, followed by the drained mushrooms and continue to saute the mixture.
  3. Add the curry powder and spam and when the spam starts to brown, add the rice and stir until all the grains are covered in the oil/butter.
  4. Add enough chicken broth to the liquid from the mushroom can to bring the total to 2/3 cup of liquid, pour into the pan.

I really liked the flavors in this! I was looking for something different to do with rice, and glad I tried this one. My kids were unsure of trying Spam, but they ate the whole thing! (I tripled the recipe except for the mushrooms and used a whole can of Spam.) The directions were very, very clear & easy to follow. This is a keeper for my family! Thanks, Bill! :)
