    Cabbage and Spam


    24 people made this

    This recipe comes from Hawaii where Spam is very popular. Serve it over a bed of steamed rice - it's great!

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 (340g) tin Spam(TM), cubed
    • 1 small head Chinese cabbage, cut into small pieces
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) water
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, or to taste
    • 1 tomato, diced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Heat a frypan over medium heat. Add the Spam and cover; fry until browned, about 10 to 15 minutes. Turn the heat to low; add the cabbage and water. Cover and steam until the cabbage is crisp tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the lid, and stir in the soy sauce and tomato (if using). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    This is a really simple recipe and quick. I love it. I serve it on a bed of brown rice with soy sauce. I use the low fat spam instead of regular.  -  31 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh yeah, this is the real thing! I LOVED this stuff when I was a kid. Now that I'm all grown up (and a vegetarian), I like this dish made with a polynesian-style marinated tempeh. Also, try it with either pineapple chunks, sliced and peeled sauteed apples, or "rehydrated" dried fruit like raisins, fig, cherries or apricots. Delicious! Serve it usually over a brown or basmati rice, but I'll sometimes make a nice risotto if I have the time.  -  25 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pretty good, like other reviewers say it was on the salty side. Less soy sauce next time, I didn't add the extra salt the recipe mentioned either. I used young kale instead of cabbage. Next time will scramble an egg with the kale and spam.  -  21 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
