Spam Jerky

Postby Allen » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:17 pm

I made Spam Jerky last night. It was pretty good. I sliced a 12 oz can of Spam into 10 slices,
sprinkled with Tobasco, and put it in My food dehydrator. It tasted kinda like Slim Jims.
The fat content is pretty high, so it probably won't store too long (that's not a problem at My house) :)

Cheers!

Cut the spam 1/4 inch thick slices and layout single layer on plate. put into microwave and zap until all fat is removed and slices are crispy. Put on paper towel, blot off all fat oil, let cool and enjoy. Adds a new dimension to spam :D The only way I can put the stuff down.

there is another way.
my favorite way to "put the stuff down" is to put it back on the shelf at the store and go get some meat!

Omly way I like SPAM is in something mom use to make. She called it spanish rice. Rice, your favorite Sphaghetti Sauce, and fried cubed SPAM. It's absolutely DELICIOUS! Of Course mom made her own sauce! I think it may be time to go visit mom! :mrgreen:

I don't eat processed meats too often. Too much fat and sodium, but this Spam Jerky is really good.
If You like Slim Jim's, You'll like the Spam Jerky.

Had Spam at camp about 10 years ago. Sliced it 1/4" and fried it up. I thought it was pretty darn tasty, JMO ;) I have not had it since but wouldn't hesitate. :lol:

To reduce all that sodium.
Slice, boil in a good amount of water, drain water, boil again, then microwave or grill to death.
Do the same for any ham variant.

Note, there are various Asian varieties of spam that do not have that off/artificial/weird taste of the Hormel variety. I've had it in various Korean, Vietnamese and other dishes that was quite delicious.
