  • 1 can of Spam, diced
  • 4 cups of cooked rice (preferably day-old)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, sliced (for garnish)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Dice the Spam, chop the onion, and mince the garlic. Make sure the rice is ready and all other ingredients are measured out.
  2. Cook the Spam: Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the diced Spam and cook until it's browned and crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Cook the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add the peas and carrots and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Scramble the Eggs: Push the vegetables to the side of the skillet and pour the beaten eggs onto the other side. Scramble the eggs until fully cooked, then mix them with the vegetables.
  5. Combine Everything: Add the cooked rice to the skillet, breaking up any clumps with a spatula. Stir in the cooked Spam pieces.
  6. Season the Rice: Drizzle the soy sauce and sesame oil over the rice mixture. Stir well to ensure everything is evenly coated. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Remove the skillet from heat. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve hot.
