- 1⁄3 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄3 cup raw rice
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon curry powder
- Add the olive oil and the butter to a hot 12 inch frying pan, that has a tight fitting lid, and sir until melted.
- Add the onion and saute until transparent, followed by the drained mushrooms and continue to saute the mixture.
- 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.
- 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.
- Put on the cover, lower the heat to the minimum flame and let sit for 15 minutes.

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! :)
