I know, I know..it's SPAM. But growing up on the islands this is a staple. Again..from AlohaWorld.com.
- Cut SPAM into strips or diced.
- Slice half a round onion and one medium cabbage thinly.
- Chop one clove of garlic.
- Heat sesame oil in pot.
- Add SPAM & all other ingredients.
- Cook until cabbage is done.
- Serve over rice.
I didn't know this was a Hawaiian thing! I used to make this all the time before I got married (husband isn't a spam or cabbage fan), best meal ever.
I have not bought Spam in many years. My oldest son requested that I make Spam with cabbage. I remembered stumbling upon this recipe, so I made it. I used Spam 'lite' but otherwise made this just as written. The shoyu made this a little too salty. I may balance it out with some pineapple juice or even a little honey next time. Overall, we liked it. Thanx!
Upped my star rating to 5 because this is a go-to meal for us. It's cheap and easy and the whole family loves it. I now make it with kosher hotdogs, since we are keeping kosher now. I just slice them up and do everything else the same. Its not exactly the same in flavor but its close enough. Leftovers are good in a sandwich wrap or on a bun too. Origional review follows: Love this. The only thing I did different was add a heaping spoon of Hosin sauce to the mix. Next time I am going to cook the spam first until it gets brown around the edges and then remove and cook the rest of it then add the spam at the end. I just like my spam a little crisp around the edges. Very good, thank you for posting. I'll be making this again. I served it with jasmine rice and everyone from 7-42 loved it :-)
