We love pork! Whether it’s pork chops, bacon, or ham, we have a pork dinner every week. This is the easiest sauce I’ve ever seen to brush over a ham – literally! It gives the ham a nice tangy taste that’s not overpowering. Check it out for yourself and see how easy – and tasty – it is!

Tangy Ham with Simple Sauce Recipe
- 1/2 cup catsup
- 1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
- 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 medium cooked ham
Combine your sauce ingredients and brush over cooked ham before putting in oven to reheat. Reheat ham according to directions on label but most tell you to cook 15-20 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Cover ham with foil or a lid if if fits into a roaster.
Is that easy or what?
Making roasting and baking easier
I know that lots of people bake their hams (and turkeys) in the aluminum pans you buy at the grocery store. Personally, I don’t. When I bake a ham or turkey, I cook one that’s big enough that those pans are simply too flimsy for my taste. I have visions of a beautifully baked ham splattering on the floor because the pan wouldn’t hold the weight. That would make me cry!
To prevent that scenario – and the tears and screaming that would follow – I have always used a heavy duty roasting pan. You do need to find a place to store it because it takes up a little room, but I use mine often enough that its definitely worth the space.
I’ve had my roasting pan forever. It belonged to my grandmother and weighs a ton. But it’s sturdy and it’ll last long after I’m gone for my daughter (or maybe a granddaughter) to inherit and use. But this roasting pan from Oneida looks to be pretty sturdy and isn’t so expensive that it will break the bank. Do you have any favorite kitchen pieces that you’ve inherited?
If your family loves pork, I’d suggest you try Chicken Baked Pork Chops. This is another simple recipe that my family loves. You might want to finish off either dinner with my Aunt Finnie’s Banana Nut Spice Cake – it’s out of this world delicious!
