    I love Spam! I like it cooked most anyway you can think of.
    Today, I shared this can with 2 friends. We cooked it straight over the fire. We had 2 nice pieces each, with bread, mustard and cheese...it don't get much better than that! Good friends and good food!

    This was a special can cause it was given to me as a gift, by my good friend Bob (not in the picture). Bob went to the Spam museum (a good friend, with real class). He brought me back a can of "hot spam" with real hot sauce in it. He also gave me a big brochure!

    Let us see your spam, how you cook it and share it with your friends.

    No picture, but when I was in Korea living off $50/mo (sending the rest of my paycheck home), I set a 'personal best' by getting 36 slices from one can of Spam. :rolleyes:

    Could be. They do a lot with TVP (texturized vegitable protien) and Seitan (wheat gluten) I made TVP Taco's for my daughter and her friends and they never knew it wasn't hamburger.

    Before anyone starts defending thier right to eat meat please know I have no issues with anyone else eating meat, I just chose not to. I'm 220lbs so it hasn't effected my growth any. You can also get all the protien you need from plant based foods.

    Lastly, I would suggest to anyone to look into TVP as a survival food. It packs light, can be prepared with just boiled water and can be flavored to taste like anyting. Plus it has tons of protien. I take it on every backpacking trip I do.

    It ain't the protein its the damn saturated fat! Other than coconut oil and palm oil its hard to find a good source of the stuff that doesn't come from an animal. One of the best most satiating foods once you get past the bugaboo the medical establishment has put on the stuff. I also tend to avoid soy foods unless fermented due to issues with thyroid and estrogen levels. Fermented soy is OK because it destroys the phyto-estrogens present in it. Tempeh and soy sauce are both fermented and are ok in small amounts.

    Sorry for the ramble, I am a health nerd ;)

    No appologies needed, we all have to adapt to our own needs. I enjoy listening to others thoughts and opinions.. that's why I joined a forum.

    Have you tried natto which is fermented soybeans? It's an acquired taste but I acquired it almost 50 years ago. Smells like gym socks and slimy and sticky as a dead slug but delicious, well to me at least. :4:

    SPAM NO KA OI

    Did you know that more Spam is consumed per capita in Hawaii than in any other state? Shoppers check the Wednesday shopper for the cheapest Spam prices. There is hot Spam, Turkey Spam, Smoked Spam, etc., etc., etc.
    McDonalds even has Spam breakfast biscuits.
    I always carry a can when kayak camping as a reserve. I take a lot of ribbing about it, but once I fed 11 campers with a can of Spam, three eggs and six English muffins. I called it the "miracle of the Spam can", feeding the masses with not much. :D

    We actually have a Spam festival every year as well as several Spam cooking contests, and many Spam cookbooks. Spam is king here.
    Spam is Hawai'i's WWII legacy.

    I have heard that on the islands you have varieties of SPAM that are not available here on the mainland. I have also heard that SPAM is very favored food there in the islands.

    Spam is a lot different product than it was years ago......it used to be less soft and weiner-like in consistency with identifiable shredded chunks of pork shoulder in the mix. It opened with a key that was soldered on the end of the can.....you could cut the hell out of yourself opening it if you weren't careful! It had a yellow jelly-like juice that surrounded it in the can.....now it's watery and saltier. You could make pretty darned good gravy out of that that stuff.

    Kind of reminds me of the story of the frog that starts out cooking in a pan of cold water....you don't really notice the dangerous situation until it's too late.

    It must be working for them though because I read in the paper that they had to add another shift at the Austin plant and go 24/7 when the economy started going downhill. It's all a lot of people can afford to eat, I guess:15:

    A real simple economical dish popular here is just Spam and head cabbage. Just slice up the Spam and cut into slivers about 1/4'' x 1/4" and brown in oil in a wok. When browned add a sliced up head of cabbage (49 cants a pound here the cheapest vegetable available) and continue to stir-fry until cabbage is wilted. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with hot steamed rice. Usually a bottle of shoyu (soy sauce), and chili peppa water on table to adjust flavor to personal taste. A couple bucks feeds a large family. ;)
    We also do this with canned corned beef, whatever was on sale that day. :4:

    Copied from my entry for the bannock bushclass.

    Here's my bannock. The mix contains pancake mix, oatmeal, brown sugar, dried pineapple. This time I also added diced spam.
    [​IMG][/IMG]
    I diced the spam and used a few pieces to grease the pan
    [​IMG][/IMG]
    Mix the bannock, spam and water in the ziplock and dump in pan
    [​IMG][/IMG]
    Hang it from pot hook over coals
    [​IMG][/IMG]
    Throw a couple of New York strips in the coals and ash cook em
    [​IMG][/IMG]
    Pull it all out when done and enjoy!
