How to Make Spam Musubi Sauce

Save

SPAM musubi is a classic Hawaiian preparation akin to Japanese omusubi -- a dish consisting of medium-grain rice and nori. Classic SPAM musubi sauce contains a seafood-based element, such as oyster sauce; a soy sauce, such as tamari; and a raw sugar, commonly turbinado. Musubi sauce acts as a quick marinade that requires a brief curing process to impart the flavor elements the preparation is known for, and facilitates attaining the crisp texture of the SPAM product.

Things You'll Need

  • Sauce One:
  • 1/2 cup oyster sauce
  • 1/2 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • Sauce Two:
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup dashi
  • 1/4 cup commercial teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 cup turbinado or other raw sugar

Sauce One

  • Mix together 1/2 cup oyster sauce, 1/2 cup tamari soy sauce and 1/2 cup turbinado sugar in a nonreactive container. Pour the marinade in a saucepan and place over medium heat.

  • Heat the musubi sauce until the sugar dissolves, approximately six minutes.

  • Remove the musubi sauce from the heat and allow it to cool on its own accord. Place the sliced SPAM in a shallow baking dish.

  • Pour the musubi sauce over the sliced SPAM.

  • Marinate the SPAM for a minimum of five minutes but not more than seven. Turn the SPAM slices over halfway through the marinating process. The qualities and ingredients of SPAM -- high fat content, chopped and formed meat and large amounts of sodium -- limit the amount of time the meat product can be marinated without degrading its quality.

Sauce Two

  • Mix together 1/4 cup mirin, 1/4 cup dashi, 1/4 cup commercial teriyaki sauce and 1/2 cup turbinado or other raw sugar in a nonreactive container.

  • Pour the marinade in a saucepan and place over medium heat.

  • Heat the musubi marinade until the sugar dissolves, approximately six minutes. Allow the sauce to cool to room temperature. Place the SPAM slices in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the SPAM.

  • Marinate the SPAM for a minimum of five minutes but not more than seven.
