Asian Plum Glaze Ham 10 Qt Roaster

Asian Plum Glaze Ham  10 Qt Roaster


This Recipe can be used on pork roast, turkey or chicken too!


  • 1 Cup Plum jam or preserves
  • tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. fresh chopped green onion
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame seed
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 2 tsp. grated ginger



Put all ingredients into your 1 qt and gently simmer for 30-45 minutes.  If you want a more intense flavor reduce the sauce further before applying.


Place the ham in the 10 quart roaster.  Drizzle with the glaze.  Start the roaster on Medium and wait for the valve to click and stand straight up for 8 – 10 minutes before lowering the heat to medium low.  If it continues to click drop the heat slowly.  Bake for a minimum of 15 minutes per pound.  The longer you leave it the more tender and juicy it will be!  I love my Saladmaster System!




green beans with shallots


  • 1 ½ lb. green beans, trimmed
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup chopped mint
  • 5 medium shallots
  • ½  tsp. salt            

    Preparation                                                                                                                                        Cook beans in a 3-quart with inset, covered, until just tender, about 5 minutes.  Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then fry shallots in 3 batches, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per batch (watch carefully; shallots burn easily). Transfer shallots quickly as browned with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. (Shallots will become crisp as they cool.) Discard all but about 1 tablespoon oil from skillet, then cook chile over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add beans and salt and toss with tongs until heated through. Remove from heat and add fried shallots and mint, tossing to combine.
