Ham Steak Recipe

The very first blog post I ever wrote was how to make a ham steak. This was 2006 and we were still zweberfarms.wordpress.com at that time. Customers had no idea what to do with the ham steaks that they were getting in their half and whole hog custom orders. So we decided to start a website and the rest is history (as they say).

Sadly, we lost some of my original blog posts when we migrated our site to self-hosted. So I have decided to share that original recipe. This recipe is perfect this time of the year because it uses all those apples that are falling off your tree or are cheap at the store. Also, the cinnamon is welcomed when the temperatures get cooler. Bonus, the recipe can be made in 15 minutes!

To order a half or whole pig to fill your freezer, give us a call at 952-461-3428. Click HERE for our most current prices. Remember, all our pigs are fed local, nonGMO feed and are allowed to run and play and do pig things.

Ham Steak Recipe

2 tablespoons Organic Valley butter

1 Zweber Farms’s Ham Steak

2-4 apples, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup real maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry ham on both sides in butter until browned.

Lay sliced apples over the ham. Mix maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl and pour over the apples. Reduce heat to medium and cover (use foil if you don’t have a lid big enough).

Cook until apples are soft.


This recipe always puts our kids in the clean plate club.
