  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the Spam(tm) 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.

very tasty. I should have used low sodium soy. I rolled it in wanton wrappers and made egg rolls. My kids loved them.

A little salty, but very good. Will use a low salt soy sauce next time.

This was great! We added snow peas too. Next time maybe some mushrooms. Thanks for sharing.

OMG - I am so glad I tried this! I did make a few minor changes -- I only bought the small 7oz can of Spam, so I diced and cooked 1 chicken breast with the Spam to make up the difference. I al...
