Vegan ham #3: Lam Sheng Kee Vegetarian Ham (Bacon Flavor)

best-vegan-hamThe first two installments (1, 2) of this review series makes the third very easy — and satisfying. Until we have a chance to sample more vegan hams, Lam Sheng Kee Vegetarian Ham (Bacon Flavor) will be the one we will buy for hot and cold ham eating.

But to be clear, I mean “ham lunch meat” substitute, not country ham or honey-spiral-thingy. It’s not as sweet as the chicken flavored ham, but not as smoky as breakfast bacon either. Just think ham lunch meat. It’s chewy without being gummy, flavorful but not cloying and — in one hot preparation — made a delicious fried rice. Fine, as long as you don’t oversell it. $10 for the kilogram log.

If you find it (or the chicken flavor ham) please note it in the comments.

  1. this stuff is amazing. i showcase it in my Simple To Gourmet Vegan cookbook in my Sweet and Sour Pineapple Ham recipe and Ham Fried Rice. I make sure the pan is really hot before adding so that it froms a nice crisp crust on the ham. Love it.
