Dutch Oven Ham and Pineapple

The popular combination of ham and pineapple meet again in this Dutch oven bake which is a great camping main meal.

Both the ham and pineapple are individually packed in a way that makes them easy to take to the outdoors without too much fuss. It is then quick and easy to assemble to create a visually pleasant meal with a familiar flavor. 

This recipe uses a simple pork rub to add additional flavoring. For a more complex set of flavors try adding a bourbon glaze over the top while cooking, this would also give it a Christmas/Thanksgiving feel.

 

Ingredients

1 small boneless ham

1 can sliced pineapple

pork rub

Equipment

12" Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the Dutch oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Prepare the pork by partly cutting slices into the ham. Each cut is the same width as a slice of pineapple and stops about 1/2 an inch (1 1/2 cm) above the base in a hassle back style.

  3. Open the can of pineapple and remove the pineapple rings while saving the juice. Cut each pineapple ring in half.

  4. Slowly put each half of pineapple into the cuts in the ham, until all the cuts have been filled.

  5. Place the pineapple stuffed piece of ham in the preheated Dutch oven. Tip the reserved pineapple juice over the ham then sprinkle with the pork rub.

  6. Set the Dutch oven to cook at 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C) and cook for 45 minutes.

  7. After 45 minutes check the ham and pineapple. Both the ham and pineapple can be seated raw so ideally, you are looking for color on the top/bottom and the internal temperature a pleasant eating temperature.
