  • Step 2

    Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Rinse luncheon meat ‘fries’ with cool water and pat dry.

  • Step 3

    Working in batches, cook ‘fries’ in preheated oil until browned and crispy on the outside and still moist on the inside, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Transfer ‘fries’ to a plate and serve with chilled dipping sauce.

  • Cook's Notes:

    You can use a mortar and pestle to make the sauce to give it more of a ‘bite’.

    For a spicier dipping sauce add cayenne or additional sriracha to taste or use jalapeno/habanero ketchup.
