Soon to Be Famous Pulled Ham...

"Soon to Be Famous Pulled Ham"
Revisited recipe from PineCreekStyle
This recipe is so simple and easy, but NOT short on FLAVOR!
If you like HAM, it will become a family FAVORITE.
Even if HAM is not your favorite, it it might be NOW. It's that GOOD!

 This is our Son's ham recipe. The first time he served it to us, we all wanted to know HOW it was fixed. We were amazed at the simplicity and flavor.

 You will need a large crock pot or roasting oven w/a lid.
  • 1 large bone-in Ham
  • 1 bottle of Red wine
Bake at 350 degrees for 8+ hours
No seasonings needed!
You may check on it, baste it and replace the lid about every hour.
The ham will start to cook off the bone. When ham is done, use a set of forks to pull the ham (off the bone) in a shredding motion. Let the ham fall into the wine's basting juices below. Mix well to blend juices with meat. The bone may be frozen to be used in a soup or beans at a later date.
 This ham looks similar to pulled pork. It is moist and packed flavor.
Guaranteed to satisfy your taste buds!
 This ham may be served many ways. Serve as seen above; shredded as the main course, in omelet's, sandwiches, taco's, soups & beans and much more.

Prime Rib Roast, Pine Creek Ranch Style

Prime Rib, the Pine Creek way.....

*Based on a 18 lb Prime Rib Roast
Adapted from a previous post 3 years ago...worth sharing again....
Pine Creek Style Meat Rub:
 2 tablespoons Kona Coffee Spice
 2 tablespoons Garlic Salt
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Pepper
Mix well...

Preparing the Meat:

1. Allow the meat to come to room temperature before cooking. This helps the meat to reach the correct temps while cooking. Set out on the kitchen counter, still wrapped, for 2 hours before you prepare for cooking. Using this method allows the meat to cook more evenly throughout the roast. 
2. After 2 hours, unwrap and rinse meat in cool water. Pat the roast dry with paper towels. Turn the oven on at 450 degrees, to preheat.
3. Place bone side down on a baking sheet or roasting pan. Cut small slits across the top of the roast (see the picture above). Insert garlic bulbs in a few of the slits, (use as desired for taste). 

**(I buy garlic bulbs at Costco they come in a large package but they are divided into small sections. I freeze them using them as I need. It works well.)

4. Rub olive oil, (Lucero is a local company, I used their garlic infused olive oil),  over the roast including the ends. Then apply the meat rub, recipe below:

5. Cover the top, sides and ends with the meat rub.

6. Sprinkle roast with course salt covering the top.

*The salt helps the meat to retain it's juices. Course salt dissolves slower, blending the flavors with the meat.

You are ready for the OVEN!

Cooking Time:
7 ribs, 16-18 pounds
15 minutes at 450 degrees
Then lower the oven, to 325 degrees, for 3 to 3 1/2 hours
Every half hour or so, baste the ends with the drippings. *Baste once across the top, just before you remove from oven. Insert the meat thermometer into the meat, the thickest part of the meat, not touching the bone, 1/2 hour before done, checking for temperature. When the temperature reaches 120 degrees, remove the roast from the oven. Let roast REST for 20-30 minutes, every important. Cover with foil while resting. Resting time allows the juices to penetrate the roast adding flavor to the meat.

 *Save drippings for your gravy!

**Prime Rib is traditionally served as a juicy, rare (to medium) piece of meat. Rare meat is cooked 120-125 degrees and has a bright red center that grows to a slightly pinkish color towards the exterior.
