Easy Recipe and method how to make your favorite SPAM at home!


  • 5 lbs – Pork Shoulder (ground)
  • 1 lb – Ham (ground)
  • 2 TBS + 1 tsp – Tender Quick

  1. Mix Tender Quick, sugar, cornstarch, Kosher salt and cold water together until everything is dissolved.
  2. Combine with ground meat and thoroughly mix.
  3. Spread mixture into 2 – 9×5 loaf pans and press firmly to remove air bubbles.
  4. Tightly seal with aluminum foil, place into a water bath and then into a 250º oven for 3-3.5 hours or until they reach an internal temperature of 155º.
  5. Remove from oven, place a heavy flat object (I used a brick) on top while still hot.
