The true star of this Spam Fried Rice is the sauce. Crafting a homemade sweet soy sauce adds a touch of culinary magic, turning a simple dish into a symphony of taste. Let me take you on a journey to create this flavor-packed gem that promises to elevate your comfort food game.

Spam fried rice ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of rice
  • ½ spam, cubed
  • 5 eggs, whisked
  • 10 oz vegetables
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sweet soy glaze
  • 2 tbsp neutral cooking oil

Garnishing 

  • Fresh parsley 
  • Black pepper
  • Red chili flakes, optional
Season eggs with salt
Eggs crepes
Slice egg crepes into pieces
Rice in the wok
Spam, eggs, veggies
Mix the rice, add sauce
Mix everything

Instructions:

  • If you don’t have day-old leftover rice, start by cooking the rice and set it aside to cool. This ensures your fried rice doesn’t end up mushy. 
  • In a large skillet or wok over medium heat, lay out a thin layer of whisked eggs, treating it more like a crepe than a scrambled egg. Allow it to cook until it forms a delicate, golden crepe. Repeat the process, creating multiple layers of egg crepes.
  • Once you have several layers, gently stack them, and then slice them into square pieces. Cooking the egg like this will add a unique texture and look to your Spam Fried Rice.
  • In the same skillet or wok, add 2 tbsp neutral oil, and cook the spam over medium heat until it turns golden brown and crispy. Set the spam aside. 
  • Add the cooled rice to the pan, breaking up any clumps, and stir for 4-6 minutes.
  • Add the cooked spam, eggs, and vegetables, and mix well.
  • Pour the sweet soy glaze over the rice and continue to stir-fry until everything is well combined and heated through.
  • Season to taste with salt and sugar.
  • Garnish with black pepper, red chili flakes, and fresh parsley.

Why cook the egg separately and not incorporate it in liquid form?

Cooking the eggs separately as thin crepes instead of incorporating them in liquid form serves two purposes.

Firstly, it prevents the fried rice from turning mushy. When eggs are added in liquid form, they can release moisture and make the rice soggy. By cooking them as crepes, you maintain a distinct texture, keeping the fried rice light and fluffy.

It also enhances the visual appeal of the dish. Slicing the eggs into square pieces creates an appealing look to the fried rice. So, cooking the eggs separately ensures a perfect balance of texture and presentation of the dish.
