Here's another recipe from the Spam cooking contest at the Greater Niagara Boy Scouts' annual winter camping event in January. Clare Banigan, a Venture Scout from Crew 93 in Clarence, took "best tasting" honors with this recipe. Jim Yuhnke, the "Spam King" and Troop 107 leader featured in today's Buffalo News, entered four recipes, but didn't win any prizes.
For BBQ pork filling:
1 12-ounce can Spam Lite or Spam Regular
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
For cole slaw topping:
16 ounces cole slaw mix (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 small can canned crushed pineapple with juice (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup craisins
For filling: Slice Spam into 1/4-inch thick slices, then lengthwise into 1/2-inch slices.
Fry Spam slices in hot frying pan until crispy and browned, turning frequently. Drain
Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup barbecue sauce to frying pan and mix. Keep hot.
For slaw (can make ahead): Mix everything together and chill.
Put hot BBQ pork filling on soft kaiser roll or bun, top with cole slaw mix and serve.
Makes about 6 sandwiches.
