Sweet And Sour Ham

This recipe came from one of those Church fund raising cook books. My husband wont eat Spam,but he eats this and loves it.
2-12 oz cans Spam
2-Tbl vegetable oil
3/4 c. onion,sliced
3/4 c. green pepper,slivered
1- 1 lb.4 oz can pineapple chunks
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1/3 c. brown sugar,packed
2- Tbl.cornstarch
1- Tbl.soy sauce
1/2 tsp.ginger
4 c.hot cooked rice
In skillet,brown Spam in oil; remove.Saute’ onion and pepper in oil remaining in skillet until almost tender.Return meat to skillet.Drain syrup from pineapple,add enough water to make 1 1/2 cups liquid.Add pineapple to skillet.Combine pineapple liquid,vinegar,sugar,cornstarch,soy sauce and ginger; add to skillet.Simmer until sauce thickens,stirring constantly. Simmer 3 min.Serve over rice

For best results use Spam, not Treat or Lunchen meat, and brown well. Browning changes the taste.

For enough to feed my husband(big appetite) and myself I use 1 can of meat and 1/2 the pineapple chunks,but use the same measurments for the sauce.
My husband prefers it served over egg noodles insted of rice.
I have also subsituted pre-cooked chicken for Spam.
