  1. Heat a skillet 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.

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.

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.

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..

Great recipe. I used Hot and Spicy Spam™ and it turned out great. I will make this one again.

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.
