Delicious Pecan Baked Ham

delish.com


INGREDIENTS
1 c. brown sugar

¼ c. finely chopped pecans

2 tbsp. unsalted butter

1 tbsp. Chinese five-spice powder

1 good quality cooked ham

2 medium onions

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, pecans, butter, and five-spice powder to create a fine, crumbly mixture. Using your hands, rub mixture onto ham.

In the bottom of a heavy roasting pan, scatter onions; then add 2 cups water. Place ham atop bed of onions and roast until glaze is glistening and deep brown, 1 hour 40 minutes to 2 hours, checking occasionally to make sure water hasn’t evaporated (add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more, as needed).

Slice ham and top with pan juices, including onions. If sauce is too thin, pour liquid into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and reduce until desired consistency is achieved.
