Potato and Luncheon Meat Combo

Oops, I wanted to submit this entry to Weekend Wokking, a world-wide food blogging event created by Wandering Chopsticks celebrating the multiple ways we can cook one ingredient, but as usual I always do last minute and then I realized that the last day was June 29th and not June 30th for submission. So I am too late but the host this month is Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple. If you would like to participate or to see the secret ingredient, check who's hosting next month. The "secret ingredient" for this mth is the humble POTATO and I thot my recipe here may stand a chance cos it is simple and delicious. Really you have to try this. It is so yummy!

Simple ingredients -
1) Potato - cut in cubes
2) Luncheon meat - also cut in cubes. The only luncheon meat closest to the Maling luncheon meat I am used to in Malaysia is the Great Value (from Walmart) luncheon. Hubby-D has been here in Dallas for many years and must have tried all different brands so I trust him.
3) Mayo - I prefer the japanese mayo cos it is a little sweet but any mayo would do even ranch mayo dressing.
4) Oil for frying.

Simple Steps -
1) Fry up the luncheon meat first till cripsy.

2) Then, with the same oil, fry up the potato cubes.

3) Drain oil, put the 2 ingredients together and then the secret ingredient to bind them together - mayo. Oh! Yum! mix together and serve and eat immediately. Voila! Ready to eat! This is super yummy! It is so fast and simple and can be eaten with rice or just as appetizer even as snacks!

WoRC are taking late submissions so just email them your entry. And remember to link to them too. :)

This looks like the basic American breakfast of corned beef and hash browns. I would have never thought of adding mayonnaise though!

Thanks for participating.

hi, do you need to boil the potato first to make it soft?

Nope, I didnt boil it. Just deep fry till golden brown.
