Spam and rice

This is one of my  husband's favorites.  Frankly, I don't care for it, but there might be some folks out there that might find that they like this. 


1 cup of rice
2 tblspns butter
1 can of Spam
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 red pepper finely chopped
1/4 large onion finely chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon EVOO

Cut of up the spam in small pieces.  I cut three length-wise, and then cut the long pieces into pieces so I have small cubes.

Warm up a pan with 1 tbsp of EVOO.  Cook the onion, pepper, and spam tidbits until the spam is brown on all sides.  You will have to stir the mix from time to time to get all the pieces browned.

After the spam/pepper/onion mix is browned (NOT BURNT) add the brown sugar and toss to coat the spam/pepper/onion mix.  Then add the ketchup.  Stir until all the pieces of spam are coated.  Cover and simmer on low heat until the rice is cooked.

RICE -- cook rice.  1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water.  Boil the water and add the butter.  When the water reaches a boil add the rice.  Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.

Put some rice in a bowl and add some of the rice mixture.

I use the word "some" because portions can vary depending on how much a person wants to eat. 

This should serve two adults and two children.

If you have more adults, double the recipe.

Remember, my husband loves this dish.  Me?  Not so much.  So test it out and see if you like it.
