Ham steak has been around for ages, but you might have never thought to put it on your grocery list. Well, add it to your cart, because it's quick to prepare and makes a great meal. Ham steak is traditionally ½- to 1-inch thick, fairly lean, and cooks in about 15 minutes for a speedy supper in the middle of the week. Make a fruit sauce, such as Orange Glaze, for a jazzy topping.
Ham steak is sometimes labeled center-cut ham steak.You can purchase boneless or bone-in steak that contains a small, round, nickel-size bone. Keep unopened ham steak in the refrigerator 7 to 10 days, or freeze it in the original unopened package for up to 3 months. When you're ready to use it, simply thaw it in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. This convenient steak can also be grilled or broiled and is great to have on hand.
