Ham Steak with Apples

Nothing better than apples and any pork product.  Here's a quick and simple dish I made last night and served with green beans and rice.  


  • 1 - 2 lb ham steak
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 apple cut into cubes (I used a Fuji Apple)
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat a 12" (number 10)  cast iron skillet under medium-low heat.
  2. Add the butter to the pan allow it to melt
  3. Add the ham steak to the pan.  Fry from 3-4 mins on each side.  Remove from pan.
  4. Add the cider, apples and cinnamon to the pan. Deglaze the pan (Scrape up and bits of ham that stuck the pan).  Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5-10 mins (depending on how hard / soft you want the apples)
  5. Combine the water and cornstarch in a bowl.  Add to the pan and stir as the mixture thickens.
  6. Return the ham to the pan,  Flip and stir to cover the ham with the apple mixture.  Let it cook for a couple of minutes.
