Nourish PA: Ham Steak with Maple Apples

Ham steaks — basically thick, juicy slices from a whole roasted ham — are an ideal dinner solution when you crave the savory satisfaction of a hearty protein but don’t have the time or the desire to make an entire roast. We love to serve pan-fried ham steaks with gently sauteed apples spiced with cinnamon, a touch of maple syrup and a sprinkling of raisins, as pork and apples are a classic pair! Garlicky green beans round out the plate for a nicely balanced supper that comes together in just over 30 minutes.

Serves 4
Prep Time Cook Time Total Time
10 min 22 min 32 min


  • 3 apples, cored and sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg or cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 2 (8-ounce) ham steaks
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can cut green beans, drained


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine apples, raisins, maple syrup and nutmeg. Cook, stirring often until apples are tender, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 teaspoons of oil. Working in batches, cook steaks, 4-5 minutes per side until fully heated through. Transfer to plate and let rest.
  3. In the same skillet over medium heat, heat remaining oil. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in green beans and cook, until fully heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Top ham steaks with apple mixture and serve with green beans.
