ham steak

A ham steak is a cross-cut through a pig’s leg. It often has a small piece of marrow bone in it.

When I repackage ham, I get some beautiful ham steaks each time, without the bone of course. Even though I love to eat ham cold with breakfast, it turns out I don't really like cooked ham or ham steak. I can handle it when I chop it small and mix it with an omelet, but not so much the big pieces.

Ham steak can be roasted, pan-fried or grilled. Alternatively, cut it in pieces to make skewers. (Pic4) Treat it like a regular steak. The thinner the steak, the hotter the pan and the shorter the time.

Ham likes some extra sweetness, hence the pineapple. It really makes it a lot more palatable.
