I have tried it with rice before, but honestly my original thoughts on the matter were much like Steve's from Hawaii Five-O:
Steve: Okay, so everything you're gonna cook for me this week is gonna have Spam in it?
Kamekona: Of course. It's Hawaiian steak. The nectar of the islands.
Steve: Do you know what's in Spam? Okay, I'll tell you. It's processed pork parts, salt, and meat stock.
Kamekona: That's what give 'em the glaze. Taste.
Steve: I don't wanna taste!
Well Saturday was the 9th Annual Spam Jam, so of course we attended!
After the festival I can say when made "correctly" (as if there is a correct way to cooked processed meat in a can) it tastes alright. I ate Spam Wontons & Spam Lettuce Wraps. Hubby was in heaven and managed to chow down some Spam Sliders as well... one of the vendors even said "You local boy, ya?" Hawaiian's say "ya" a lot...
It was a fun Saturday afternoon/evening... lots of restaurant vendors, local artists, local musicians and hula groups, and of course- Spam souvenirs.
