Spam & Kimchee Fried Rice
When I was a kid, my uncle used to serve us Spam sandwiches–cold, gelatinous slices of spam sandwiched between two floppy pieces of Wonder Bread. No wonder I hated Spam! It wasn’t until post-college that I learned to love Spam. A roommate had made fried rice with it and I couldn’t believe how NOT DISGUSTING it was! In fact…I loved it. I now love fried slices of Spam over rice with a sunny-side up egg, Spam musubi, or pan-fried Spam marinated in sugar/mirin/soy sauce over rice. I wish I could eat it more often without affecting my health.
This is one of our favorite meals, tastes great the next day, and takes no time at all.
Throw in cooked rice (2 cups when dry). Traditionally, this is day-old rice. When I use fresh rice, I spread it out in a baking pan to cool/harden, or throw it into the freezer to quickly cool it down.
Maybe add some fried rice sprinkles for extra flavor
I love fried rice because its so quick and easy. I can make rice the night before and come home from work the next day and quickly have dinner ready. Its a great way to get rid of leftovers (sausages, roast chicken, any vegetables).
