  • Stir chicken broth, peanut butter, and soy sauce together in a small saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring, until a smooth peanut sauce forms. Season peanut sauce with pepper.

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; cook udon noodles just until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, then add back to pot over low heat.

  • Stir peanut sauce and SPAM® Classic into noodles until noodles and SPAM® Classic are coated; turn out onto a plate and garnish with chopped green onion, if desired.

Cook's Notes:

For additional flavor, add in a couple drops of sesame oil or red chili flakes to the sauce.

This is also good garnished with chopped fresh cilantro.

I had to try this really bad!! Glad I did however my grocery store in my itty bitty town did not have dry Udon noodles so I opted for the premade Udon Ramen in the produce cold salad section where I found the wonton and egg roll wrappers. It was quicker to put together and I just tossed the flavor packet aside for another use later. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. I found it slightly to bitter with nutty taste. So Thankfully I had my mom tell me to add about 2-3 drops of sesame oil and about 3 TBSPs more of the chicken broth. It worked and was to our liking. It was gone in a flash with no leftovers. I will make again with the addition that I did and will make our table quite often! TY Read More

Good baseline recipe. I used chicken instead of Spam. Used 14 oz. of rice noodles and doubled the standard sauce ingredients. Sauce turned sticky quickly so added even more broth until it was more creamy/liquid to make it a nicer consistency. The cilantro and green onion are a must to make it more flavorful. Kids and husband approved! Added cayenne pepper to my plate. Will make again with shrimp! Read More

I used this recipe for the sauce but I substituted chicken and two scrambled eggs for the protein. It was really good i did however use crunchy peanut butter for texture add a little more chicken broth to the sauce and added some seseme oil as a previous comment suggested- great tip! It was a really good simple recipe for when you're low on time but want something yummy:) I'll be making it again. Read More

This was very good actually. I took my time browning each side of the Spam cubes which I think made a difference. I didn't have scallions, so I sautéed onions and threw on top with some sesame oil and crushed red pepper and cilantro as suggested. Husband liked. Next time I will make the cubes smaller than 1".

Good simple recipe. My daughter likes it but her brothers don't. I think I would like it better with the green onion added. I didn't have any this time. Definitely will make again. Read More
