Shynka (baked ham) is a traditional Ukrainian dish. It is cooked of piece of meat (chiefly of pork) seasoned with salt, pepper, minced garlic and other spices before baking it in the oven.
As many Ukrainian dishes, the shynka has it overseas analogues. Therefore, Austria and Germany boasts Schweinsbraten, and Quebec has rôti de porc, which literally means “baked pork”. In Russia, it is made of mutton or even bear meat and it is called buzhenina.
The shynka is traditionally baked in aluminum foil. Therefore the meat is wholly steamed; then it is baked soft and almost melts in the mouth. Some housewives prefer to cook shynka in the pastry.
It tastes best both hot and cool.
