The next question is probably "what is CHIPPED?" That just means that it is cut so very thin that you can almost read a newspaper through it. If you've ever used a deli slicer, it is setting 2. Sliced, is a setting of about 4 or 5. I know, because I used to do that, and cut off the tip of my thumb when cleaning it one time. Chipping ANY meat on a deli slicer makes the FLAVOR come through more in the dish you prepare. Heck, I go to a butcher shop to get my roast beef, bacon, and even chicken breast lunch-meat chipped. I get it that way because I don't have to do it on my own, and they don't charge me to do it. I love true butchers.
Next question is: what recipe do you use when getting ready to watch a Steelers game on a Sunday? Here is what I use, in the crockpot/slow cooker.
- 1 cup BBQ or chili sauce
- 1 cup Coke (no other brands because they are too sweet)
- 1 - 2 pounds of CHIPPED CHOPPED HAM
- Mix sauce and Coke in a bowl.
- Place half of the ham in the crockpot/slow cooker.
- Cover with half of the sauce.
- Put in remaining ham, cover with the rest of the sauce.
- Cook on a low setting for 5 hours, stirring often.
- Serve on a bun.
