What is chipped ham??? Yunz gotta be a 'Burgher to know that chipped ham is shaved ham. Any kind of deli baked ham can be used, cut very thinly or shaved. In Pittsburgh, it is "chipped". An early version of this dish used a local brand, Isaly's Chipped Chopped Ham, a rather greasy but tasty composite loaf. One of those things you really didn't want to know what the contents really were. Anyway, I use a similar recipe with more vinegar and brown sugar, and onions and garlic, too. This is a very convenient and good-tasting sandwich to take to a picnic (use the crockpot) or to sell at a fund-raiser.
We r from Pgh.. don't live there now so can't get the Islay's but as every1 else suggested just asked for thin sliced or shaved ham. I make it in a crock pot: layering meat, bbq sauce,lil ketchup, sprinkle brown sugar, relish, lil mustard.. just keep layering & stirring & then let all flavors combine on low til warm. Not an actual "recipe" cuz it's all by taste, in our family for years! I made 'em up here in northern NY & no1 had ever had anything like them. Pgh original anyway u make them!
Yins are gonna love 'ese chipped ham barbecues. Perfect for watching them Stillers play football on the Norside of dahntahn.
I live in Pgh now, but I didn't grow up here. Knowing how particular Pittsburghers can be about their ham bbq, I was nervous to try making it myself. But, I made your recipe, and all my hubby's relatives (natives)have absolutely RAVED about it, saying it is the best they've had. It made me proud, so thanks a ton! That was 2 years ago, and I still make it often. I make it exactly as written, too :)
WOO HOO! Finally a recipe that tasted just as I remembered it! I added a tbsp of grape jelly b/c I was told my uncle used to do the same thing, but kept everything else the same. Thanks for the recipe!!
Gotta love anything Pittsburgh! My children were both born at Magee Womens and we lived in da Burgh for 11 years! Anyway, we love these. When in a hurry, I just put the ham in the skillet, put either Sweet Baby Ray's or KC Masterpiece on and get the mixture good and thick, then I add a little Sprite or other lemon lime drink, thicken that a bit and have the most delicious sandwiches! My oldest asks me for these and now can make them himself! Go Pens, Steelers and Pirates!
I am from Pgh and this is one of the best recipes for using chipped ham that I have found...THANKS!!!
A Pittsburgh tradition! And ohhhhhhh so good. Have to buy Isaly's Chipped Ham to be authentic though! Will be on a lot of Super Bowl tables this weekend. Go Steelers!!!!!
