Spam Fried Rice
-2 tablespoons cooking oil
-1 celery rib, diced
-3 carrots, diced
-5 green onions, diced and divided
-1 can SPAM
-1 large can pineapple tidbits, juice reserved
-2 cubes chicken boullion
-1 to 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
-3 cups leftover cooked rice
Start by chopping 1 celery rib, 3 carrots, and several green onions. Separate half of the diced green onions from the rest of the vegetables.
Next, open a can of Spam and place the “block” of meat on a plate or cutting board, patting dry first with a paper towel if necessary. Using a serrated knife, dice the Spam into 1/2″ or smaller cubes.
Heat a deep skillet or wok over MEDIUM HIGH burner heat with about 2 tablespoons cooking oil. When warm, add vegetables (minus half of the green onions–which you already separated) and meat. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes, moving constantly with wooden spoon.
Drain a large can of cubed pineapple; reserve the juice. Add the pineapple tidbits, along with 2 cubes chicken boullion, to the skillet and continue stir-frying for several minutes, until pineapple begins to carmelize in some spots.
Once fruit and Spam have started to brown, reduce heat to MEDIUM and add 3 cups leftover cooked rice to the skillet. Splash heavily with low-sodium soy sauce (or use somewhat less of the regular variety) and add the reserved pineapple juice. (Also, if you are not using low-sodium soy sauce, you might want to cut the chicken boullion back to just one cube due to the added salt.) Continue to stir-fry, uncovered, until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Just before removing from heat, stir in the other half of the chopped green onions. Serve immediately.
