Smoked Bone-In Ham

This is our suggested method for preparing  our Sugar Valley Meats' old fashioned smoked ham.

  • 20 lb. bone-in smoked ham, approximate weight  (pre-sliced, if desired)
  • 2 - 12 oz. cans of clear soda

Place ham in an electric roaster or deep oven roasting pan.  Pan should be large enough so that the lid or foil covers the ham completely to hold in the moisture. Pour soda over the ham and bake at 275° for 6-7 hours.  Baste occasionally to ensure moistness.  The ham will be extremely tender with a sweet and smokey taste using this method. Serves approximately 40 people.

Braised Short Ribs over Pasta

  • 4 lb. Beef Short Ribs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • 2 TB Olive Oil
  • 2 Green Peppers, sliced
  • 1 Large Onion, sliced
  • Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • Farfalle Pasta
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Season short ribs with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place in a crock pot on low for 8 hours (the longer they are cooked, the better they are). When short ribs have been slow cooked, cook pasta to al dente. While pasta is cooking, sauté peppers and onions in a large skillet. Begin to carefully shred the short ribs off the bone. Once onions & peppers are tender, add small amount of broth from the ribs as well as the shredded meat. When that has cooked down for about 5 minutes, add the halved cherry tomatoes. Season mixture with more salt, pepper and garlic powder. Serve over pasta, top with parmesan cheese.
