Hi everyone,
the Beggar's chicken recipe reminded me of this one. It is made with fresh ham, smoked or fresh ham hocks, but they are baked before wrapped in the dough and baked again.
Here it is:

600 gr flour
35 gr yeast
salt lukewarm water

Make dough, let rise.

small fresh or smoked ham or ham hock
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
salt, pepper, marjoram
1 onion, sliced
oil

rub meat with spices, then brown on all sides in a little oil.
Bake in the oven until tender.
Debone it.
Roll out dough .
Position meat in the middle of the dough, spread with Dijon mustard and wrap dough around it, making a bread loaf shape.
Brush with eggwash and bake until golden brown.
It can be eaten warm or cold, but it is easier to slice when cold.
Very Happy

Mitmondol, this sounds like a really interesting recipe. Something like the Italian Stromboli. Emmm.. what do you do with the onion? Roast it together with the ham?

hi dear!

in Singapore, there is a famous Chicken curry in bread sold here. Its called the Golden Pillow..nice name. the chicken curry is cooked separately in a pot, then cooled..and wrapped up in a cling wrap to be bound up. And place in the centre of the bread dough to bake.

see here:

grin

soon after it hit the streets, people would buy it to try. and many wanted to know how it was made. grin

we bought once to try it. we only love the bread because it was freshly baked. but the curry chicken wasn't that wonderful. so thus, I believe many would want to learn how to do this at home. using their own best loved, tried and tested curry chicken yummy

Gina, I think you should try my recipe.
I understand, European (I'm from Hungary) taste is very different from Asian.
But as much I enjoy trying Asian recipes (and love most!) you might like some of my side of the world.
The basics are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo different, yet, some of the flavors are so close.
You use things that I never even heard of when I lived in EU.
Living in California opened a whole culinary world for me!
I would love to teach you guys some of "my flavors" as much as want to learn "your flavors".
In other words I want to learn from you and I want you to learn from me.
Does it make sense?

Hi mitmondol and Gina
I wonder and doubt you would know but there is a traditional Christmas bread prepared in Venezuela called pan de jamon or ham roll bread. It is loaded with olives as well
google for pan de jamon you should find many pics and recipes to your liking

mitmondol,

I am always game to try food and cuisine from outside Asia. chinese food, to me, is comfort food. however, many western cuisines need someone to teach one to taste and appreciate the food.

unfortunately, not everyone tells the whole truth in recipes. many of them i had to do my own guessing game.
