Korean hillbilly food

Spam fried rice...we eat it at least once every 5 days. Spam of all things is a main staple in Korea. If you go to E-Mart, there is an entire isle dedicated to Spam. The story goes: back during the Korean War, Spam was a food that was distributed to all the American soldiers most days. When some soldiers tossed their cans of Spam off to the side they were picked up by South Koreans who ended up LOVING it for life.

Steve is the one who perfected our family recipe. Of course we start off with a fresh Korean rice cooked in our rice cooker. We add 3 eggs, 1 can of spam chopped to our skillet and cook with a spoonful of oil. Then stir in the cooked rice, a TBSP of soy sauce, 1 tsp Lawry's and stir fry for a few minutes. We love this stuff!!!

I cook this all the time...I had onions and sometimes potatoes and a bit of fresh garlic.
