1 can Spam, julienned ($2.99)
2 Tbsp olive oil (pennies)
4 carrots, peeled and sliced on the bias ($1.00)
3 stalks celery, sliced on the bias ($0.50)
1 large onion, halved and sliced ($0.50)
1/2 large head of cabbage, thickly shredded ($0.50)
garlic salt, soy sauce, red pepper flake to taste (pennies)
4 cups cooked rice (estimate at $1.00)
Heat oil in large skillet or wok over high heat. Add carrots, celery, and onion; stir fry for 5 minutes. Add Spam, cook and stir until meat browns slightly. Season to taste. Add 1/4 cup water to skillet, stir until water evaporates.
Serve over hot cooked rice. Makes 4 large servings, but you can stretch it out more by upping the veggie content. Or you could double the Spam (this is the Rodriguez household's s.o.p.)
Feed your whole family for $7. Or get even cheaper, and use hot dogs or bologna for the Spam. Enjoy!
