Does Spam have a place in ramen?

>> No.18265687

Never tried spam but it always looks so tasty...

>> No.18265766

I like spam. its like a really salty pork hotdog shaped like a brick. not a delicacy by any means but adds salty meatiness where you want it. good with eggs, sandwiches, or even as a meaty mixin for fried rice or rice. I wouldnt put it in ramen though.

it looks mad yucky out the can but if you get it crispy on a skillet it's pretty good

Yes, I’ve literally had spam in ramen at an Okinawa-cuisine izakaya in Osaka. The broth was made less salty to even it out.
Pic loosely-related; basically spam-tempura I had at the same izakaya on another visit.
Try the low-sodium stuff, bruh. I actually prefer it to “regular” spam for that reason.

I always eat Spam with rice. You need something to cut the saltiness. Pic related was from yesterday and your thread made me crave it again.

>> No.18265830

Letting the slices soak in water before cooking draws out quite a bit of salt. I’ve seen people do the same with “country” ham as well.

Another pic from that izakaya.
The name of the dish escapes me at the moment, but it was spam, tofu, scrambled egg, and bitter melon.
It was the first time I actually had bitter melon in a form I thought was really good.
Probably because the spam balanced the bitterness.

No, either spam or instant noodles alone already exceeds the daily sodium RDA. Combined that's way too much salt.

Fun fact Treet got it's name due to the tendency for the ingredients to randomly tremble. Trembling meat was eventually shortened to Treet. The cause of the trembling is still unknown.

Fresh meat can move but I doubt canned meat would react that way. Might be possible though. That anon is bullshitting though. That brand is not named for that reason.

If someone put spam in my Ramen I would extract their teeth with a 9 iron

>> No.18270586

The product may sometimes tremble due to compressed gas escaping from within the meat. It's cooked at high pressure, and it's high in gelatin that can trap air bubbles until a bit after it's opened (nice hiss) and the pressure equalizes.

Spam has its place in anything

I like to take bricks of spam re grind them down and pack them into sausage casings or make burgers.

I like to take 20 tins grind it down re form it and smoke it in a smoker in funny shapes like a giant octupus smoked spam brisket.

I like to take like 40 tins grind them down and form turkeys and cook and serve it for thanksgiving in someone elses house after they leave town to visit family. I usually invite a few vagrants ply them with bags of meth and hold them at gunpoint while i make up stories of how none of the photos inside the house include me or look like me.

Its comedy.
