Unlike most people, I like spam. I don't eat them a lot but I always have couple cans in my pantry. I remember whenever my mom needed a quick, easy meal; spam was always on the menu. I know some people think Spam is such a disgusting food. Why is that??? Here people eat hot dog, bologna and think that spam is gross, I don't get that at all, What is the different between them? They are all processed meat! So if you eat hot dog or bologna, I will ask you to give spam a try.
I made some spam musubis for lunch, the kid loved it and I was very satisfied. It is very easy to make and so yummy. Give it a try! You might like it.
Ingredients2 cups uncooked short-grain white rice
2 cups water
4 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp white sugar
1 (12 ounce) container fully cooked luncheon meat (e.g. Spam)
5 sheets sushi nori (dry seaweed)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
- Soak uncooked rice for half an hours; drain and rinse, then cook it in the rice cooker.
- When the rice is done, let it rest and cool down for 15 mins, then stir in rice vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar until mix well.
- Slice spam lengthwise into 10 slices, or to desired thickness, and pan fry them about 2 mins per side or lightly browned. Cut nori sheets in half and lay on a flat work surface. Place a rice press in the center of the sheet, and press rice tightly inside. Top with a slice of luncheon meat, and remove press. Wrap nori around rice mold, sealing edges with a small amount of water. (Rice may also be formed by hand in the shape of the meat slices, 1 inch thick.)
- Musubi may be served warm or chilled.
