Recipe: SPAM MEsubi

Written by

This week on the show, Evan talks with Roy Choi, the chef behind the Kogi Taco Truck and Chego. He’s heading a new campaign for Hormel Foods promoting SPAM.

The cans of salty, cured meat are a popular part of the cuisine in many Asian cultures that saw American military influence in the twentieth century. Choi tells Evan that when soldiers introduced SPAM to the people living outside their bases, the product became a window for Asians into American culture.

Choi shared his recipe for SPAM MEsubi. It’s his take on the Hawaiian SPAM musubi.
