Recipe for family meals :

Spam and Ramen with Onion and Roasted Pepper

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This meal will make an inexpensive lunch for two, or can be expanded and can be easily made at a camp site".


6 ounces Spam
1 green bell pepper, roasted,peeled and diced (very easy)
1/2 cup onions, diced
1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles
1 clove garlic, peeled and diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon butter

  • Impale the whole green bell pepper on a long handled fork, making sure that the tangs protrude from the other side. Hold over an open flame until the flesh blisters and starts to turn black.
  • Place the pepper into a paper bag and seal for 15 minutes, then remove, and rub the skin that has been loosened by the steam until it comes off. Remove the stem and seeds.
  • Cut the peeled bell pepper into small pieces, add the salt and black pepper, and set aside.
  • Bring two cups of water to a boil.
  • Melt the butter in the olive oil in a medium sized frying pan, and then sauté the onions.
  • When the onions are nearly transparent, break up the Ramen noodles and add to the boiling water. (Do not add the contents of the seasoning package. The seasoning can be used later to flavor rice).
  • Add the Spam, bell pepper, and the garlic to the frying pan and stir for 3 minutes which should give the noodles time to cook.
  • Add 1/2 cup of the water from the cooked noodles to the frying pan, drain the noodles and add to the frying pan.
  • Remove the frying pan from the heat and set aside for another minute while the water is being absorbed.
