About this recipe: Eat this ham shank if you'd like to teach the world to sing! This is a slow cooker delight. I'd read about this but couldn't believe how delicious it turned out. Also, since moving to France I have been searching for pork and ham dishes because in Brittany it seems to be the meat of choice - can't afford the chicken and can't find lamb easily. Serves 2 to 3 as a meal or makes a pile of scrummy sandwiches.
I have used this recipe so many times, friends love it and it makes a great addition to barbecue buffet food as well as an extra Christmas cut of meat
I made this recipe with 2kg of uncooked gammon joint. I covered in the slow cooker with full fat coca cola around 2litres. I added a small pinch of pepper. I didn't add salt as ham usually quite salty. I left the gammon to cook.on high for about 8 hours. Once removed from slow cooker I places in oven at 180 for ten mins after glazing with mustard and honey. I personally don't like pork but around 6 people tried it and asked me to cook again and how I made it. Overall winner - 08 Feb 2016
