Recipe Notes
  • We love a ham steak dinner because it's so fast and kid friendly, and this ham steak dinner recipe is no exception.  It's done in 12 minutes.
  • What is a ham steak?  It's a slice of ham of a whole ham.  When getting a hog butchered, it's really convenient to get ham steaks that you can use one meal at a time instead of an entire ham which is really more geared for large family gatherings. 
  • Ham steaks are typically already smoked, so you just need to reheat the ham, and doing it in a sweet gravy like this one is easy.
  • Basically, you are heating the ham steak, removing it and then using the drippings to make a gravy.  Return the ham to the gravy, and dinner is served.
