This fresh ham is surprisingly good. Be forewarned though that love and patience is required, as to obtain its best taste, this needs to be baked in a rotisserie at low heat for up to 4 hours.

Description

This fresh ham is surprisingly good. Be forewarned though that love and patience is required, as to obtain its best taste, this needs to be baked in a rotisserie at low heat for up to 4 hours.

Ingredients

1 lb
fresh pok ham (whole lean meat of pork)
   
to taste: cayenne, paprika, cumin, black pepper, salt (Note: You may also use just your good old seasoned salt or make one.)
   
to glaze: 3/4 c orange juice, ¼ c olive oil, 3 Tbsp honey

Instructions

Place a baking sheet on the very bottom part of the oven and pour in about 2 glasses of water. This will help keep the meat moist.
 
Preheat oven (grill part) at low heat.
 
Rinse pork with tap water and pat dry. Season to taste the whole meat with cayenne, paprika, cumin, black pepper and salt.
 
Place rotisserie stick in the middle of the meat, then stick in the oven and let roll. 

Below shows how a

rotisserie looks like in an oven.  All ovens must have this as this gives you advantage in roasting meats by having the sauce bathing the meat as it rotates.

 
Prepare the glaze by mixing together orange juice, olive oil and honey.
 
Glaze meat every 20 minutes as it cooks. Do not stop the rotisserie while glazing so the meat will be coated well.
 
Let cook for up to 4 hours. Waste time in-between by doing laundry, cuddle with your lovie, or play with your kiddie.
 
At the third hour, measure meat temperature using meat thermometer to make sure the inside of meat is well cooked (should be 170 F minimum for pork).
 
When temperature reached 170F or more (too much will make it overcooked), take out from oven (don’t forget to turn it off). Pull out the meat from the rotisserie, slice thinly or however you want. Savor!
