- One Tablespoon of Crisco Oil
-1/2 a Tablespoon Sesame Oil
-1/2 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce

-3/4 Tablespoon Siracha (Add More If you Like)
-2 Eggs
-2 Cloves Garlic
-1/2 Can of Spam
1 Cup of Vegetable Mix (Has Corn, Carrot, Peas, and Green Beans.

Step 2: Cooking Rice

Measure three cups of rice and place it in the rice pot. You will add water till it is about an inch from the rice. Swish the rice back and fourth to clean it of its flour. Dump out the water, making sure not to dump any rice. You will repeat this two more times. Once you are done, put this in the cooker and let it cook. It will take about twenty minutes for most rice cookers.

Step 3: Mincing Garlic

With the two cloves of garlic, mince it till it is just a little chunky, but fine. Put in a dish when done.

Step 4: Cutting the Spam

Using only half the can, cut the spam into six slices. Then, cut it across, four times. Then cut it six times diagonally.

Step 5: Mixing Eggs

Crack to eggs in a bowl and mix till they are scrambled.

Step 6: Cooking Eggs

Add Pam or any cooking spray to the pan. Heat the stove to medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the eggs and cover it with a lid. After about two minutes, the eggs on top should be about done, and the bottom will be golden brown. Just in case, flip the egg upside down so that the top heats up. Put on a plate.

Step 7: Sautee Garlic

On medium heat, add a tablespoon of the oil into the pot, and add the minced garlic cloves in. Mix around until garlic is light brown.

Step 8: Adding Spam and Vegetable Mix

First, add the Spam. Keep cooking the Spam until it is crispy golden. Next, add the frozen vegetables. Keep cooking the vegetables till they are nice, crisp and hot.

Step 9: Toss in White Rice and Add Sauces

Scoop out rice and put it in the pot. Then, mix it in so that all the ingredients combine. Add the Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Oyster Sauce, and Siracha together.

Step 10: Cut Eggs and Toss In

Cut the circular eggs like above. Make sure they are all separated, and toss in to the fried rice. Mix so that the eggs will be all around. Then for just a little bit more flavor, circle the rice with Siracha.

Step 11: Serve

Serve desired amount over bowls. For extra flavor, it is optional to put green onion, pepper and salt, more soy sauce, seaweed, or furikake. Congratulations! You have learned how to make Fried Rice.

    I used to make this all the time, but my killjoy wife hates Spam. I make it when it's just the kids and me at home. It's a variation of Yang Chow, Yeung Chow or Yangzhou Fried Rice. It's also good with dried fish flake. SPAM RULES!!!

    This was a go-to meal for my family when I was growing up, but we used cubed ham instead of spam. Thanks for sharing!

    I usually Kim chee, but that's when I do Korean style. Also, the original Siracha brand is better. To make with kimchee, replace vegetables with 3/4 cup kimchee with the sauce.
