Use a cast iron skillet. Over the years, we’ve come to the realization that cast iron is absolutely our favorite method in cooking meat (inside). We’ve got an article explaining all of the benefits of cast iron, check it out.

In this recipe, butter is a big part in getting the right texture with the ham.

  1. Slice ham steaks into thin strips, then cut into shorter pieces about 2″ long. Small strips = better meal.
