This is a quick meal cooked in a skillet for all you lovers of ham. In my family we don’t eat as much ham as we use to. I remember back in the olden days, ham was more prolific. It was a matter of economics. A ham steak was a cheap meal. But, now and then, I indulge my yen for a good ham steak. And this is the easiest way to do it. For the dish given, you’ll need a large ham steak, about 1-inch thick, and preferably maple and sugar cured. The rest is, as they say, a cinch.



1 large ham steak, about 1-inch thick
3 tablespoons butter
2 large potatoes, unpeeled, sliced thin
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced thin
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
½ cup chicken broth


  1. Heat butter over medium-high flame in a large skillet.
  2.  Add potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, and chicken broth.
  3.  Bring to a boil, cover, lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
    Yield: 4 servings.
