Spam Fried Rice Recipe

Serves 2 | Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes


3 cups overnight steamed rice
2 1/2 tablespoons oil
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 oz Spam, cut into small cubes
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, defrost
Salt, to taste


1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil, optional
3 dashes white pepper


Break up the lumpy overnight rice with the back of the spoon or fork, or with your hand. Mix all the ingredients for the Seasonings in a small bowl.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in a wok over high heat and cook the eggs first. Use the spatula to break the eggs into small pieces. Set aside. Reheat the wok with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and stir-fry the garlic until aromatic. Add the spam pieces and stir-fry until light brown before adding the mixed vegetables. Stir to combine well.

Add the rice into the wok and use the spatula to stir-fry continuously until the all the ingredients are well blended. Add the Seasonings into the wok, blending it well with the rice and ingredients. Return the cooked eggs into the wok and combine with the rice. Dish out and serve immediately.

    This is almost the exact recipe that was used at a Chinese restaurant that I used to work at when I was in hs. It was delicious. I used to eat an entire soup bowl(Chinese soup bowl). The chef added a little curry powder to kick the flavor up a bit. Now instead of spam, I use chicken. It’s healthier this way.

    There is a restaurant in Saipan and Guam callled Shirley’s that serves hot and spicy spam fried rices. In fact their recipe is on the side of the hot and spicy spam can…..I love spam

  4. Ahh, spam. I’m not a fan of the meat, but my Minnesota roots make me proud of the famous brand (it was created in Austin, MN where Hormel is based). Did you ever make it to the Spam Museum? Would have been just a few hours drive east of where you went to school.

    Funny thing is, there is a big Mayo Clinic outlet across the street from the museum. I guess it makes sense to have some of the best doctors in the country very near to where people are eating a bit too much spam…

    I have fried rice with spam for the last 15 years and my adult children loved it. We used 1 can of spam, instead of cutting in cubes, we use folk to mash it. We used 5 rice-bowls of cooked rice(it doesn’t have to be overnight as we used 1/2 jasmine and 1/2 basmati). We add chopped onions, any of the following chopped greens(snow peas, french beans, gailan stem), eggs, and top with chopped green onions. The good thing is no salt, soya sauce or fish sauce is necessary.

    This is really good! I’ve tried over the past making fried rice but i always end up putting too much soy sauce that the fried rice basically taste like soy sauce.
    I love how it’s so simple yet really delicious as well. I mostly eat spam and rice for breakfast but this recipe makes me love eating spam and rice without getting tired of it!

    This recipe is great, and very simple. We served it as a side dish to our neighbor (who happens to be of Korean descent), and he liked it so much that not only did he have seconds, he had thirds!
