Tips For The Fresh Pork Ham Roast Recipe
➡️ Many people don’t consider cooking fresh pork ham steak when thinking about the most appetizing pork recipes. This is, probably, because they don’t know how to cook fresh pork ham to get a tender and tasty roast!
➡️ Fresh ham roast in the oven is very tender because of the low temperature used for cooking. Plus, it’s very flavored due to the spices from the marinade. Furthermore, the recipe is easy to make and doesn’t require advanced cooking skills.
➡️ If you’re a passionate foodie, instead of water you can use white wine when roasting the ham in the oven for a more refined taste.
➡️ If the ham slice is thick, I recommend covering the tray with foil and baking the ham in this way for about an hour, then remove the foil and continue as described previously. So, the roast will be very tender and juicy.
➡️ There are some people asking me how to cook a whole fresh ham. Frankly, I don’t recommend cooking the ham in this way unless you have a brick oven where you can make a wood fire because the chunk is too thick, just like the bone. Plus the ham muscle fiber is pretty hard and, therefore, considering all these factors, the roast won’t be tender enough, at least in my opinion.
➡️ As a result, when I cook fresh pork ham roast, I cut the ham across to get 2-3 finger thick slices that are just perfect for roasting. If you can’t do this for any reason, I recommend removing the bone from the ham and then cutting it at least in two halves lengthwise before cooking in the oven.
➡️ Along with the fresh ham roast, you can serve different side dishes like mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes, risotto, and many more.
➡️ When it comes to drinks, a dry or half-dry white or a cold beer match at best this pork ham steak in the oven.
