Okay, bought the expensive Kurobota
- redhat207 Dec 21, 2005 08:27 AM
Berkshire hickory smoked ham that I had asked about here in a thread about a month ago. Can't believe how expensive it was. 10 pounds. Came with nothing.....no cooking instructions, recipes, etc. I'll be calling them this morning but in the interim......
Need help in two areas, 1. How to cook, guess reheat is a better word. Temp? Time? Tent with foil? etc.
2. Need a recipe or suggestion for some kind of a "gravy" or juice as ham always seems a little dry to me.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated and Happy Holidays to all the Chowhound amateur chefs!!!
Sorry i don't have too much to offer here, though Tomhall's link is great...
Your Kurobuta should cook up a treat without being dry- the Breed (also known as Berkshire Hogs)have not been bred like most commercially available pork- the breed is still as fatty and lucious as your granparents would remember pork. The meat has more intramuscular fat that keeps it juicier, more tender and more intensly flavored. I dig Kurobuta pork chops!
