"This recipe comes out of Hawaii and I have been making it for about 20 years now. It is very good, easy to make and everyone I have made this for loves it. I serve it on top of a bed of rice." — Arva

1 (12 ounce) container
fully cooked luncheon meat (e.g. Spam), cubed
1 small head
napa cabbage, cut into small pieces
soy sauce, or to taste
salt and pepper to taste
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.
I don't think the spam went well in this. It would be better with shrimp.
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.
I'm surprised this is not on the SPAM website... This is a quick and tasty meal ( I served it on white rice). It's so simple and flavorful. Great way to incorporate your veggies. I used 1/2 TBS. of soy sauce and if I needed more added it to my taste while I was eating. Great affordable meal..
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.
Great recipe. I used Hot and Spicy Spam™ and it turned out great. I will make this one again.
A little salty, but very good. Will use a low salt soy sauce next time.
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 also threw in a thinly sliced leek (using up veg from my CSA box), only cut up half of my enormous Napa cabbage (should have used the whole thing), and I only added about 1.5 T of low sodium soy sauce. Oh, and I put quartered grape tomatoes on top of each serving. SO YUMMY! I, too, served over rice and will definitely be making this again!
