    A great use for leftover ham on Boxing day. Gammon is pan-fried with onions and pineapple in a sweet sauce. Best served with rice.

    Loved this-the sauce was great over rice.  -  02 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    SUPER EASY AND SUPER QUICK MEAL. I bought 1# of Virginia Baked Ham at the grocery store deli when it was on sale and cubed it for this recipe. NOTE: there is not enough pineapple juice in the can of chunks - you will have to add real juice or open extra pineapple - I stir fried the ham, pineapple and onions till they started to brown - which made it have more of grilled taste. We ate it over white rice and it was delicious!  -  14 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added some shredded carrots and diced up a jalepeno to add. That made it PERFECT because otherwise it would have been too sweet. It gave it a bite (but one my 2 year old could handle) and the sauce toned down the jalepeno. The sauce is pretty thick but still good. We had it over white rice. I only had 3/4 cup of pineapple juice, so I added apple juice to make it the right amount.  -  31 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
