But I didn't want to put my ham to waste so I thought of masking it and making my Hamon experiment. What better way to hide the look and taste by adding a strong ingredient, bagoong (salted shrimp), thus a new dish was born: Binagoongan Hamon (Ham with Shrimp Paste) . I posted a picture of it on Twitter and I was surprised by the tweet backs that I got.
Binagoong Hamon and Rice
Left-over ham (cubed)
2-3 tbsp shrimp paste (bagoong, I used Kamayan brand)
2 tbsp cooking oil
1 medium size onion ( chopped)
1 medium size tomato
3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp pineapple glaze left over
3 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp sugar
Saute onion, garlic and tomatoes. Add the ham, give it a quick stir. Mix the pineapple glaze, vinegar, ketchup and sugar in a bowl, pour it over the ham. Let it simmer until the sauce is reduced.
For the rice, use the same pan and mix the rice thoroughly with the left over sauce on the pan. Add toasted garlic. Mix well. Voila, you are ready to dig in and... ENJOY!
"son of a ham" that made me laugh! But this is a dish to reckon with. Good job Malou!ReplyDelete
That is a whole lotta ham. I wouldn't know what to do with it all. My mum also makes two hams for Christmas for only my brother and I- crazy. We keep telling her every year NOT to make 2 hams to no avail. :)ReplyDelete
I end up taking all the ham to the xmas celebration with friends. I guess it saves me from making anything LOL Bless our mums.
LOL. I just pictured you screaming 'Son of a ham'.ReplyDelete
Anything with a taste of shrimp gets a thumbs up! Glad your experiment worked.

Anything that tastes like shrimp is a winner. Glad your experiment worked out.
A successful experiment, Malou! I am savoring this dish vicariously, as any attempt to cook with bagoong in my house sends hubby and kids running! Looks really delicious.ReplyDelete
Next time you don't want to put ham to waste send it my way. Love that sweet hammy bagoong. Malou, you're gonna make this stuck in my head again.ReplyDelete
That is a great idea on recycling ham. Thanks for sharing, Malou.ReplyDelete

Haha you made me smile with "Son of a ham". This looks great and it's nice when experiment results in successful dish. Is that handmade bowl? Looks so colorful (inside and outside diff color) and cute!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful dish in a beautiful bowl! I will lick the bowl clean, too :D I hardly eat ham..wonder why. I think it's because no one served me...haha. I should have invited myself to your place to help you eat all those ham :P I need to try one of these days. Hope you have a great day.ReplyDelete
Great idea for hiding the ham flavor, and looks so delicious!ReplyDelete
