BBQ Chipped Chop Ham Sandwiches – A Pittsburgh Super Bowl Recipe

(To celebrate the Steelers getting back to the Super Bowl, I’m re-running some of the recipes I posted the last time the Steelers made it to the big game. As before, these recipes will make a great addition to your Super Bowl party.

Today, I start with Chip Chopped Ham Sandwiches.)

It’s only 13 days until kickoff, and already I’ve annoyed Tara with my talk of food and football. She’s countering every point I make, and making sure to keep me honest when discussing this touchy subject.

You see, when it comes to feeding and eating on Football days, I am a traditionalist (some would say classist). Come kickoff time, I don’t want to hear about Portugese-Style Salt Cod Fritters or Barcelona Style rice. I want the day to be about who and what’s on the field, and not about who cooked the food. So the food should be good, simple and accessible.

Since Pittsbugh is in the Super Bowl, I’ve got several recipes lined up that will win people over and provide a Pittsurgh Style celebration.

This recipe is unsophisticated, but tried and true. This is the point. I’ve updated it a bit after playing around with the recipe.

  • 2 lbs Chip Chopped Ham (shaved ham if this cut is unavailable in your area)
  • 3 cups of your favorite BBQ Sauce
  • 1 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 green peppers, diced
  • 8 Kaiser rolls
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Place all except the rolls and cheddar cheese into a slow cooker. Heat for four hours.

Scoop onto rolls and top with cheese before placing the top of bun on the sandwich.

Serves 8
