My Grandfather’s Ham Barbecue Recipe

This is my grandfathers recipe for Chipped Ham Barbecue. Chipped Ham is extremely thin sliced ham from the butcher or meat department at your local supermarket thats a big staple of Pittsburgh. It’s almost like a Sloppy Joe except the meat isn’t ground up like a chili. You’ll want to get regular or smoked ham, not the maple or flavored kind as it will throw off the taste. Finding chipped ham is easy, you can usually just ask the butcher or deli for them slice it on the smallest setting they have.

Pork Chops with Celery Sauce

I seen a similar recipe the other day while browsing online and it seemed like it might be worth a try. The local store had some good prices on chops so I grabbed a few and whipped this up. I thought it was pretty easy and has a ton of flavor that is different from the usual pork chops you find in restaurants.

Hot Soy Mustard Sauce

Here’s a new sauce I tried this week that is a great spin for grilled fish or chicken. You can forgo the chili oil if you want something without any heat but I had to boost it up a bit. I used this as a baste on the grill and it had an awesome flavor that is really fresh and exciting. It can also be used as a dip with some fried wontons or white corn tortilla chips.  Mix about 2 Tablespoons of this with the juice of 4-5 limes to make a great marinade that works on any meat.
