What is Ham Steak?
You can find ham steaks in the refrigerated section of the grocery store in the meat department. They come already sliced and wrapped.
Costco has a package of three ham steaks together for one low price.
Ham steaks are cut from the center of cured ham. They range in thickness from 3/4″ to 1″.
How long do Ham Steaks last once they are cooked?
Ham steaks will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator. I doubt that you’ll have any leftovers though!

Tips for making Glazed Ham Steak:
1) You can substitute regular mustard for Dijon mustard.
What to Serve with Ham Steak:
1) Macaroni and cheese.
Macaroni and cheese is one of the most perfect ham steak sides. They seem to go together like salt and pepper.
Maybe I think that way because that’s one of the side dishes that was served with my country ham steak when I was growing up.
2) Mashed potatoes.
Mashed potatoes add a nice balance to the sweetness of the sauce for ham steak.
3) Green beans.
When you’re done cooking ham steak in the skillet, you can use the same pan to make your side of green beans. You can put your fried ham steak in the oven to warm until they are done.
Applesauce pairs well with any ham steak meals. Whether you have your own homemade applesauce or buy your favorite brand, applesauce add a little “wow” factor to your dish.
The brown sugar ham steak go well with rustic soups.
6) Side Salad
A side salad is a healthy option when deciding what to make with ham steak. It would be fun to serve a different type of salad that mirrored the season you’re serving it.
