Skillet Country Ham with Honey Glaze

There's no easier weeknight meal than a good ol' country ham steak, slapped in a skillet and topped with a honey glaze. When the ham comes out of the skillet, crank up the heat and toss a couple handfuls of fresh summer veggies from the garden in there to sear and dinner is served!


  • 1-2lbs smoked and cured country ham steaks (rind removed if present)

  • 2 Tablespoons butter or lard

  • 2 Tablespoons dijon mustard

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • Mixed vegetables (whatever is fresh and in season! Okra, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, beans, you name it!)


  1. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat

  2. When evenly hot, add butter or lard, allow to melt then add your ham steak

  3. Let the ham sear on one side for a couple of minutes (3-4 per side), then flip and sear on the other side

  4. Remove the ham from the pan and add the dijon and honey

  5. Mix together and return the ham, flipping it to coat in the sauce, cook for another 2-5 minutes, until caramelized, then remove to a plate

  6. Wipe the pan out and return to the heat along with another tablespoon or two of butter or lard

  7. Add the veggies and cook until seared and slightly wilted

  8. Serve
