The ham steak sauce is made of brown sugar, water, butter, Dijon mustard, and paprika.  You might want to make extra if you serve the ham steak with mashed potatoes.  You can drizzle the glaze over the side dish.  Yum!

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!

What to Serve with Ham Steak:

1) Macaroni and cheese. 

Macaroni and Cheese Ham Steak Sides

Macaroni and cheese is one of the most perfect ham 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 slice when I was growing up.  

2) Mashed potatoes.

Mashed potatoes add a nice balance to the sweetness of the sauce for ham slices.  

3) Green beans.

When you’re done cooking the ham 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.  

4) Applesauce. 

What to Serve with Ham Steak - Applesauce

Applesauce pairs well with any ham slice meals.  Whether you have your own homemade applesauce or buy your favorite brand, applesauce add a little “wow” factor to your dish.  

5) Soup

The brown sugar ham will go well with rustic soups.  

6) Side Salad

A side salad is a healthy option when deciding what to make with ham.  It would be fun to serve a different type of salad that mirrored the season you’re serving it.

Can this be done in the crockpot? We have a pretty large, fresh ham steak that looks more like a roast. It’s probably 3lbs?

Hello Jennifer - You can, but you're going to have to make enough sauce to cover the whole ham. Let me know how it goes.

Any chance this could be cooked in the oven? I feel like every time I try to cook any kind of steak on the stovetop, it gets super smoky in the kitchen.

Kelly

Hello Britney! I'm sure the recipe would work in the oven too. I don't know how long it should cook for because I never tried it that way, but keep an eye on it because of the brown sugar. You don't want that to burn. Kelly
