  • SPAM - it's almost primal!

    Okay, I admit it, I am a lover of processed meats. I love sausage, bologna, hot dogs, ham, salami, SPAM, etc. Grind it up with some spices, fat, etc., stick it in a casing, and I'm your girl. While some may miss sweets when they switch to primal, it's these processed meats I miss. (Or mostly miss because I occasionally indulge.)

    So, I posted in another thread something silly about SPAM and I thought I should go see how non-primal it really is. Here are the ingredients for SPAM classic:

    Pork shoulder
    Ham
    Salt
    Water
    Potato Starch
    Sugar (not HFCS)
    Sodium Nitrate

    And they claim that 90% is from the pork shoulder. The gelatinous stuff is the aspic that happens when the pork broth cools.

    So, I'm thinking that perhaps I could make a primal version of SPAM for myself to crisp up and put next to fried eggs. They've given me 90% of the recipe.

    What say you primal cooks? Should I give it a shot?

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

          Gwamma-
          All this most recent spam are asshats that steal bank account info and then sell it.
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  I don't know about making it yourself, but I keep a couple cans in the pantry for when that desire hits. I'm not too afraid of our gelatinous porky meat cube friend.

                      The residents of the state of Hawaii consume the most Spam per capita in the United States. On average, each person on Guam consumes 16 tins of Spam each year and consumption is similar in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Guam, Hawaii, and Saipan, the CNMI's principal island, have the only McDonald's restaurants that feature Spam on the menu. In Hawaii, Burger King began serving Spam in 2007 to compete with the local McDonald's chains.[12][13] In Hawaii, Spam is so popular it is sometimes referred to as "The Hawaiian Steak".[14] One popular Spam dish in Hawaii is Spam musubi, where cooked Spam is combined with rice and nori seaweed and classified as onigiri.[15]

                        I call it meaty delicious goodness, but I may steal gelatinous porky meat cube because it's so much more descriptive.

                        I love puttering around the kitchen, Gwamma, but I've learned that I don't really have those follow through qualities it takes to start a business. However, you never know - I might come up with a recipe and then sell that. It makes you burp? I wonder why. Pork? Sugar? The preservative?

                        I went to Hawaii in the early or mid 90s, and I was delighted to see that when you go out for breakfast or lunch, there's actually spam as one of the options next to bacon and sausage. Funny because I think Hawaii is one of the US's largest beef producers.


                        I used to live in a little town in Central Washington where they had filmed a TV show called Northern Exposure. Anyway, long after the show was over, the town continued to have yearly Manly Man Festivals. Very camp. There were both a SPAM cook off (SPAM quiche was always a big crowd pleaser) and a contest for SPAM art. Sadly the festival ended about 10 years ago.

                            I just looked at some labels at the SPAM website. It looks like anytime they reduce sodium or calories, they add other ingredients. SPAM Lite (I used to call it SPLite) actually has chicken in it! Jalapeno flavored only has the jalapeno and vinegar added to the original list of ingredients.

                            Anyone want to take bets on whether or not I end up at the corner store today to buy a can of SPAM? And will I fry it up with some cheese and jalapenos? It was outta sight outta mind until I started this damned thread. LOL

                              ... a slab of spam is way better than a slice of bread to pop an egg onto.
