Chef Chris Cheung knows how to take the sometimes ordinary, always tasty comfort food we love and transform it into a mouthwatering, head-turning dish. Here, he uses a mystery basket of Dinty Moore® beef stew, pineapple and one of his favorites (SPAM® classic) to create a not-to-be missed meal for the whole family.
Let’s give ourselves half an hour to cook this dish.Chef Chris Cheung
