Cubed Ham/Bacon (Read 224 times)

     

    This bit of brilliance seems to have been overlooked.  Kitchen shears are your best friend.  I use them for cubing chicken and beef, and they are awesome for cutting bacon (even easier if you throw it in the freezer for a little while.  You want firm, not frozen.)  Much, much, easier than using a knife.  And they easily come apart into two pieces for washing..

     

    I like you! Smile

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

       

      I want to try a recipe that calls for "4 ounces slab bacon or smoked ham, cubed."

        

       

      perhaps i missed a post, but did you ultimately manage to cube that ham?

      I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".

        The ham remains uncubed.

         

        ...but not due to my incompetence this time...my schedule just got super-busy, and I've barely had time to heat up soup for dinner, let alone put something together myself.  Christmas break is here in 2 hrs., 40 mins., though, so maybe soon!

         

        I will say, I'll likely go the bacon route, mainly because my wife does not like ham.  Bacon's okay, though.

          You could try to find a roll of uncut pancetta, which makes most regular bacon cry.

           

          top advice, but if time's a premium, get a chorizo (ring & dice or slices) and fry for a few mins over a medium/high heat (additional bonus of not needing any oil to cook).

           

          anyhoos, ham on!

              well...spam is canned ham

                Since it's been resurrected, has the ham been cubed?

                  I thought it had something to do with Kevin Bacon.

                    Not yet.  A process this complicated, I'm going to need to wait until summer vacation, I think.

                     

                    Though I did finally get around to sharpening my knife.

                      But now, every time i go to the grocery, I notice the little bags of cubed ham there. Never noticed them before this thread
