    8 hours 55 minutes

    This is a lovely way to serve sliced ham - rolled up and baked with a port wine and cream sauce. In Sweden it's called dromskinka.

    Serves: 5 

    • 12 thick ham slices
    • 1 cup (250ml) port wine
    • 3/4 cup (185ml) thickened cream
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
    • 1/4 cup tomato puree
    • 1 tablespoon butter

    1. Place the ham slices in a shallow baking dish and pour port wine over them. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
    2. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
    3. Pour off the port wine from the ham into a medium bowl. Roll up each slice of ham lengthways and place side by side in the baking dish. Mix the cream, curry powder and tomato puree into the port wine. Pour over the ham, making sure to get all of the slices covered. Dot the top with small pieces of butter.
    4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until the ham begins to brown on top.

    I liked this recipe. I used red wine & added some sugar instead of the Port & ketchup instead of tomato puree. I will slice the ham thinner next time so it will be easier to roll & I think I will roll it around an asparagus spear & onions. I also found that it only needed 30 min to cook.  -  27 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'd never cooked with port before but this was surprisingly good! My boyfriend LOVED it.  -  14 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Reminds me of my grandmothers. Like being a little girl again. Thank you for posting this! I used sherry instead of port and instead of rolls I diced the ham to put over egg noodles. Also good with mashed potatoes, which we will do next time.  -  08 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
