Navy Stew Recipe

SPAM® luncheon meat, made from ham and pork, along with a few other
simple ingredients, was invented in 1937 by Jay Hormel. Since 1937
over 6 billion cans of SPAM® have been sold. There are many ways to prepare this
all-American classic, and there many recipes that have been developed using SPAM®. There is a lot of fantastic information (and fantastic humor) at the official SPAM® website


Did you know that SPAM® luncheon meat played a crucial role in the effort of the Allied forces to liberate Europe during World War II? Hormel Foods provided 15 million cans of SPAM® (invented in 1937 by Jay Hormel) to the troops each week, and SPAM® quickly became a regular part of their diet. Here is a SPAM® based stew that I developed from a recipe that was said to have been used in the galley of a U.S. Navy ship during WWII.

1 clove garlic

1 cup green bell pepper (with membrane & seeds removed), diced

1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced

1 12 oz. can SPAM®

1 15.5 oz. can Trappy’s® navy beans flavored with slab bacon (or fantastic northern beans)

1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves

1 tsp. Lawry’s® seasoned pepper (or black pepper)

In a large pan or pot, melt butter over low heat. Add the SPAM® and heat at low temperature for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Then add the garlic, bell peeper, onion, and celery and sauté until tender, but do not brown. Then add all other ingredients. Slowly bring to boil, cover and turn down heat and simmer for an hour or until potatoes are tender. Tastes fantastic with fresh rolls and butter!
