This simple dish doesn't take long to cook and is best when prepared the morning of the brunch. If you need a head start, however, you can mince the shallots and cut the ham the day before.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup minced shallots
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons water
4 (4-ounce) slices smoked ham (about 1/4 inch thick), cut into thin strips
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
How to Make It
Heat oil in a 9-inch cast-iron or heavy skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; sauté 2 minutes. Add vinegar and water; cook until reduced by half (about 1 minute). Add ham; cook 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Remove ham from pan; sprinkle with parsley.
Note: You can purchase smoked ham in the deli section of the supermarket and have it cut into slices.
By reading the recipe alone, you might not think too much of this dish, but it's really good and super quick and easy. I used frozen, leftover honeybaked ham and served it with cilantro pineapple rice. A very tasty pairing.
