Pork and Spam Sliders

Pork and Spam Sliders with Spicy Pineapple Slaw

Could there possibly be a better finale location for our Chef Gina’s Love, Adventure, and Recipe Series than Hawaii?

We don’t think so!

That’s why Maui Pineapple Nuptials, Book 32 and  the final novella of our 32 novella food lit series, takes Chef Gina to the paradise of the Hawaiian Islands.

In case you missed it, “food lit” is literature or fiction that features “food” and “recipes” as part of the plot development.


Developing recipes with a Hawaiian twist, is something that Chef Gina’s test kitchen staff  is thoroughly enjoying.

Our Pork and Spam Sliders recipe is certainly no exception!  A compilation of Spicy Pineapple Slaw stacked on  a layer of Saucy Fried Spam, then Pulled Pork (without a sauce), and topped with Sliced Apples (we used a Red Delicious) ; this recipe combined with your favorite rolls (we prefer Hawaiian, of course!) is bursting with tropical flavor that pleases the pallet.

To prepare Saucy Fried Spam, slice the Spam into 1/4 inch slices.  In a pan, combine teriyaki, soy sauce, honey, and garlic.  Bring to a boil, then reduce by simmering until thickened into a good sauce consistency.  Pour sauce in a separate dish to set aside.  Use the same pan to brown the spam.  Once browned, add sauce with the spam and cook on medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
