The thing is, sometimes we don't think about pairing food items up. Just like the Pork Chops with Apples & Onions. And half the time I struggle finding supper ideas.
So today's food posting isn't anything tough. It isn't anything difficult.
I kinda think that's great.
Don't we all need a few fast, easy meals that are super tasty?
It's easy, you just cut up in pieces and cut off the larger pieces of fat. I trimmed this one badly. Oops.
I don't add water. I only barely defrost. Just enough to cut the pieces up.
It sizzles and cooks and I just let it. Water forms on the bottom from the frozen pieces, some of the fat liquifies and sizzles.
Once the liquid is down and it's browning, I pour in some juice from a can of pineapple chunks. Just enough to coat the bottom of the pan and let it cook in. Make sure to turn your ham so it browns on both sides.
If you like sweeter ham, mix up a bit of brown sugar with your pineapple juice, or sprinkle it on.
Do this a couple of times to get the pineapple flavor in your ham, and every time the liquid is down and your ham is browning, I move the ham around to pick up all the browned goodness on the bottom of the pan.
Then move your meat onto a plate and...
How hard is that?
As kids, my sis and I would fight over the last few pineapple.
If your kids look at this with dubious eyes, just throw it in a bowl and serve on the table. They can try it on the side and not necessarily on their ham.
You know how some foods you just tend to always serve together? These are one of those foods. Maybe I'm trying to go with a theme. Hawaiian foods, sorta. They eat a lot of rice, right?
What do I know.
Oh, and I totally cheat and use a rice maker. I love it! I can make rice in a pot, bu t it's soooo easy to just pop it in here and have perfect rice cooking while you go and fix other food.
Easy, quick meal, and on the table in 20 minutes.
Yeeha! Wait, what?
