Pineapple-Glazed Ham is a perfect addition to your holiday meal plan. It is easy to make and tastes amazing.
Pork + Pineapple may not be a flavor combination that everyone thinks of all the time, but it should be! Growing up in Mexico, one of my favorite dishes were the delicious Tacos Al Pastor, which consist of marinated pork, cooked with fresh pineapples and then topped with additional pineapple and salsa.
Today’s recipe is similar, in that it includes both pork, and pineapple. This pineapple-glazed ham is not what you would normally think of when you think of Mexican food, but I can assure you that it is popular there. It is something that most people don’t make often, but it shows up around the holidays every year.
I really think that pork is an underappreciated meat. It is so versatile, so delicious, and healthy too! I, for one, always look for great pork options when I go to restaurants. You can find many different recipes like this one by going to PorkBeInspired.com. You can also find local stores that have great cuts of pork at affordable prices.
Whether you are making a simple dinner using pork or a succulent pineapple-glazed ham for a holiday celebration, your family is going to be impressed. This particular recipe is very easy to make. You will create a homemade glaze using brown sugar, white wine, and pineapple juice (along with a few other ingredients). To give it even more flavor, you will add slices of sweet pineapple along the outside so that all of those delicious juices will be incorporated into the ham as it cooks.
I really hope that you give this recipe a shot this holiday season. You will not regret it and your family will be happy too! Check out the recipe below and let me know how it turns out.
