Delicious Spam Fried Rice

Who doesn’t like fried rice? It’s sold in every Asian restaurant and takeaway.  What is best….it’s everything in a plate. It’s quite a convenient food really. My mom made awesome fried rice but again she has no recipe. Just frustrating! My children are surely luckier as I put down everything here on my blog which they can always refer to. They don’t even have to worry about misplacing cookbooks and recipes which always happen to me.

My favourite way to make fried rice is to use Spam, not that bad term used so widely on internet these days. Talking about it, I’ve been receiving many spam comments. I am thankful that my system effectively sieves them out. Well, the Spam that I’m using for fried rice is chopped ham and bacon in a cane. I don’t use canned food. This is an exception every once in a long while out of sheer convenience. But it is really good. Most of the time I use Chinese roasted chicken to make fried rice.

I made this Spam Fried Rice for lunch the other day and my children said, ‘This is very nice!’ Once again I’m a happy mom. Here’s my recipe to share:

Ingredients A
1/2 tin Spam (mashed)

Mashed Spam

Mashed Spam

Fry until fragrant and dish it up onto a plate. Do not add any oil. There’s enough oil in the Spam. Cutting them into small cubes may look neater but I prefer to mash them up. I think it gives a better flavour and feel to the fried rice.

Ingredients B
5 pips of garlic (peel and chop finely)
1 big onion (peel and dice)
oil

Chopped garlic and onions

Chopped garlic and onions

Heat up some oil in the frying pan. Add in the garlic and onion and fry until fragrant. Dish up onto a plate.

Ingredients C (vegetables)
1C green beans (sliced)
1/2 C carrots (diced)

sliced green beans

sliced green beans

diced carrots

diced carrots

Add the vegetables to the frying pan. You don’t need to add any oil The frying pan is oily enough. Add some water and cover it. Cook until the vegetables are tender and not hard. Dish it up onto a plate.

Ingredients C
3 eggs (beaten)
3C of cooked rice
light soya sauce

Add ingredients to rice

Mix up everything in frying pan

Using the same frying pan, heat up some oil and add the beaten egg. When it is half done, stir it up with a spatula so that it is like broken omelet.  Add in the rice and fry well. Add a few tablespoons of light soya sauce. Use a good soya sauce like Kikkoman. Fry well again. Then add in all the rest of the other ingredients in A and B and stir well. Dish it up into individual plates and garnish with the chopped chili, fried shallots and coriander. Enjoy a lovely meal.

Ingredients D (garnishing)
red chili (chopped finely)
coriander (chopped finely)
fried shallots

Of course you can omit the Spam to make it into a vegetarian meal. Only that Spam gives it that extra flavour to the fried rice.

Yum! Looks delicious. Never realized spam could be used in fried rice. Will give it try and let you know how my fried rice turns out!

i can never make a good fried rice! just too soggy sometimes.
yours looks really good, any tips?

Sherrie, thanks for your comments. I really hope you try soon and let me know how well it goes. I believe you will enjoy it.

lululu, thanks for dropping by and leaving comments. I find that the best rice to use is Thai Jasmine AAA rice. Use a rice cooker to cook. It’s the easiest. The rice comes out really nice. Also, for fried rice, use less water to cook the rice so that the rice will not come out too soggy.Try and let me know. Otherwise, you have to come here and I’ll cook for you!

I tried this recipe. Turned out pretty good. I think I didn’t add enough water for the rice so it came out abit hard but in terms of flavour, I liked it.

@Sam - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment, Sam! I’m glad to know you have tried this fried rice and like the flavour. I’m sure your second attempt will be much better when the rice is a little softer. Have fun cooking :D
