Spam Kim Chee for dinner

Looks like Art and Kay from!

Looks like Art and Kay from!

Almost 40 years ago (man, Aunty is old), we used to do craft fairs at our homes with friends.  Ann Kondo Corum was a librarian at Kawananakoa School and had just published Hawaii’s Spam Cookbook.  She is a super fantastic artist and each page has her delightful cartoon drawings related to each dish.  Since she was selling her cookbooks as well as doing original art cards to order, Aunty made her Korean Style Spam dish for our guests.  It was really tasty and a hit, and she sold many cookbooks that day.

This is an easy recipe that cooks up quickly with what we already have in the pantry and refrigerator.  It is a winner with rice and sort of healthy because kimchee is a good source of natural probiotics to help our digestion.

Here’s the recipe (adjust ingredients for smaller eaters):

1 can SPAM, sliced in 1/2″ slivers (Aunty does logs)

1 12oz jar of Kim Chee

1 small onion, sliced

2 tsp shoyu

Brown SPAM slices in a skillet (smashed ginger optional).  Place Kim Chee in a strainer or colander and rinse with water.  Drain well.  Add Kim Chee, onion, and shoyu to SPAM and cook about 2 minutes.

This dish is also good with sliced zucchini (Aunty does logs).

    Ummm… What did you mean by logs?

    • Aunty

      I cut the spam about 1/4″ thick in slices, then I stack 3 or 4 slices and cut 1/4″ strips across the width so they look like logs to me. They end up like 1/4″ x 1/4″ squarish noodles by about 2″ in length. Actually, they can be any shape or size.

      Don’t you think the cartoon looks like you and Art? Ann would doodle and draw caricatures all the time. She even did a logo for our craft group, Tomodachi Productions. It was so cute.

    Oh my! You’re too funny AND you’re not old. The cartoon made me chuckle though. I’m just going to have to try making that recipe just for the fun of it. Art doesn’t like spam, but what the heck! I do.
