Homemade Luncheon Meat

Finally found this homemade luncheon meat recipe whereby the texture and taste are near to the canned version!! This is definitely healthier without traces of preservative and colorings. Moreover homemade ones you are able to adjust the saltiness level you preferred :) Will you still buy canned spam meat if you are able to make this healthy version one at home?? ^.*

  • 350gm minced pork
  • 60gm egg whites (approx 2 eggs)
  • 15gm corn flour
  • 15gm cake flour
  • 1 tbsp plain water
Seasoning :
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce (can increase to another 1 tbsp if u prefer saltier)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp five spice powder
  • 1 tsp red yeast rice powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger juice
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

  1. Combine all seasoning with minced pork and mix well.
  2. Add in egg whites and stir till mixture binds together.
  3. Add in corn flour and cake flour, and stir till mixture is in sticky form.  (stir vigorously in one direction for about 1-2mins). Add in water in between the stirring.
  4. Lightly grease a heatproof ramekin, spoon in meat mixture in 3 batches, each time spread and press out the layer evenly to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Cover the ramekin and steam over preheated steamer for 35 mins or until cook through.
  6. Cool down completely before slicing. 
  7. For serving , pan-fry the slices till golden brown or chill the remaining in fridge for 3-4 days.

Thank you for sharing this recipe! May I know where to get the red yeast rice powder?
Is it mainly for color, if omitted will it affect taste significantly?

Peng, this is great! My children like canned luncheon but I always try discourage them. Your homemade luncheon is indeed the best choice compared to the commercial one. Thanks so much for sharing :)

Peng said...

Bowie...u can get red yeast rice grin from Chinese medical hall then grind into powder. It won't attribute any taste, just for natural red hue ;)

Ivy....try ths homemade version see I you like it ;)

Hi Peng! Just wondering what that yellow stuff is in the bowl. I thought you only need ginger juice but that looks like ground ginger.
Thanks for sharing this recipe. Will make it soon for my family.

Peng said...

Karel Chu....Hehehe I just add the whole finely grated ginger. U can just use the juice if u preferred.
