Soy glazed spam rice topped with sunny side up egg, made with a pan and an easy recipe

This quick and satisfying dish is my go-to on my busiest days when I don’t need to cook for my family but also don’t want the hassle of getting takeout food. With a hint of sugar, soy sauce and oyster sauce on Spam (or processed canned pork), every bite is packed with so much guilty yums. Get ready to indulge in a simple yet satisfying meal that will surely become a favourite in your recipe collection!

Imagine a dish that brings together the bold umami of Spam, the subtle sweetness of soy glaze, the savoury depth of oyster sauce, and the comforting embrace of a runny egg yolk—all atop a bed of steaming, fluffy rice.

The humble can of Spam is transformed into a star player in this recipe. Cubes of Spam are seared to crispy, golden perfection, taking on a whole new dimension of flavour. These crispy nuggets are then bathed in a luscious glaze, a blend of sugar, light soy sauce, oyster sauce, and water. The sauce thickens to coat the Spam, creating a tantalizing blend of sweet and savoury, with a hint of umami that is simply irresistible.

I have a soft spot for Spam despite all it’s nutritional deficiencies, because I relied on it a lot while going through university as a quick and easy source of protein in my meals, without having to spend on expensive takeout food. You could add mixed vegetables or some salad to make it a tiny bit healthier, but having this Soy Glazed Spam Rice with Runny Egg Yolk still beats other types of ridiculous dorm food that I’ve seen my friends eat, due to either a shortage of cash or just plain laziness (soy sauce with plain rice, anyone? 😂). And to this day, I still keep at least 1 can of Spam in my kitchen at all times, so I’ll always be ready for a quick and easy meal like this. So let’s get to it!
