What is Ham Steak?

Ham steak is a slice of ham from a whole ham roast and is often sold boneless and pre-cooked. (They can also come with a bone in the middle, both types cook the same way). Ensure your package says “fully cooked”.

Ham steaks are super convenient when roasting a whole ham takes too much time. Like bacon, ham steaks add a lot of flavor to sandwiches, soups, and salads and can be eaten at any mealtime! Look for steaks that are uniform in size and thickness, are deep pink and layered with a few ribbons of fat for a tender and moist steak!

What to Serve with Ham Steak

Add a few tasty sides like garlic mashed potatoes or parmesan roasted broccoli along with this tasty caesar salad.

For breakfast, serve alongside a cheesy hashbrown casserole, or top with a poached egg!


Leftover ham steaks have so many different uses! Put slices between toasted ciabatta bread for a hearty sandwich or dice up and toss on top of a bed of greens for an easy, work-day salad!

To store, just keep them in a zippered bag in the refrigerator and when it’s time to reheat, pop it in the microwave or reheat in a skillet with a little extra maple syrup and Dijon mustard to refresh the flavors!
