Old-Fashioned Ham Steak
Barbara came up with this recipe when she was looking for a quick weeknight meal. It only takes 12 minutes from stove to table and that is a win.
You can usually find ham steaks at your local grocery store (ask at the meat counter) or your local meat market. We love visiting Rihm Foods in Cambridge City, Indiana and stocking our freezers. We especially love their smoked bacon and County Fair Burgers (pork burgers, yum).
If you are wondering about how to cook ham steaks, it’s super easy. Since they are already fully cooked, you just need to cook them for a few minutes on each side either on the stove or on the grill.
For this Old-Fashioned Ham Steak, we put it back in the skillet with the gravy for a couple minutes to warm it up and coat it with the delicious maple gravy.
