Teriyaki sauce is easy to make yourself. You’ll find my recipe at the bottom of the page. SPAM is perfect for teriyaki because it already has a salty, pork flavor. If you have SPAM haters in your household then this recipe might be able to tempt them to the side of good. It doesn’t taste like SPAM. It just tastes like Teriyaki. Turkey SPAM is also good prepared this way.
Teriyaki Glazed Luncheon Meat
- 12 ounce can of SPAM, cut into strips
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Teriyaki Sauce (see easy recipe below)
Cut the SPAM into thin slices, then stack the slices and cut into strips. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the SPAM and sauté until it is lightly browned. Sprinkle the sugar over the SPAM and allow it to caramelize briefly. Add the Teriyaki sauce. Stir until the sauce evaporated and coats the SPAM with a thick, golden brown glaze. Remove from the heat. Serve over plain cooked rice. Makes 2 to 4-servings, depending upon appetite. Mandarin Oranges or Pineapple Rings or Mixed Tropical Fruits all make excellent accompaniments along with a plain vegetable like kale, collard greens or canned cabbage. This recipe is easy, exotic and absolutely delicious.
