Ham Barbecue-Pittsburgh Style

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by dsimkovic

I've seen a couple variations of this one the 'zaar, but this is the way we do it in The Burgh, and it's a classic. They're great for picnics and can be kept warm in a crock pot.

I didn't have chipped ham, it is not available in this area, but I did have some thin slices that I coarsely chopped that I substituted. It took about 15 minutes for my onion to get soft, before I could add the ham. Then I simmered it for about an hour for the flavors to blend. Very, very good...I think this is going to be a keeper.
