An excellent solution for a quick and easy lunch or dinner – Pittsburgh chipped ham barbeques with a simple, made from the scratch sauce. Ready in less than an hour that requires only a few simple pantry ingredients, this is a huge hit always! Chipped ham or shaved ham are the pride of Pittsburgh. They are iconic in Pittsburgh, and the most sought after. I am crazy in love with this lunchtime staple, a copycat of the original that tastes almost the same.

Tangy barbecue sauce serves hot on hamburger buns – super comforting and mouthwatering. You got all the exciting flavours, the textures in a snap that cracks in your mouth. Try this if you must, to know what I am raving about. I’m sure you’ll love this more than I do!
