I only gave one star because I kept burning myself with my lighter when heating the oil.  I wish this could have been a video so I could understand this complicated recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I find it interesting that some who read these instructions are so talented & yet so insecure that they feel the need to point out that these simple instructions are beneath them. To those I say, everyone has to start somewhere, there are likely to be many people that didn't realise you can just heat up ham & it will taste good. If you have mastered the art of pan frying, pull you head in & go learn a different skill. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Y'all can laugh at me, but when I was newly married I didn't know that all you had to do to cook a ham was just to heat it up. And when I found ham steaks in the grocery store, I was like, "What in the world are these, and what in the world do you do with them?" lol. So this would've helped me out. Besides that, I also note, as the other reviewers did, that this is part of her other recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously!!? What about what utensil to use to turn the ham? Can I use my fingers? item not reviewed by moderator and published
so this is how you do the 30 minute cookbook recipes? Sweet item not reviewed by moderator and published
1 star for telling people only how to heat ham. I believe that most foodnetwork dot com users would appreciate something a little more advanced. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thoroughly enjoyed reading these reviews. Lots of humor here. Granted, it's not a recipe, but does appear to have been helpful to some. item not reviewed by moderator and published
1. Rachael doesn't write or post these recipes. They are transcribed by a person who does only that. 2. You can't get trichinosis any more from farm raised pork, even if you ate it completely raw. Ham is ALREADY COOKED! All you have to do is heat it up, thus the simple instructions. This is part of a different recipe, so instead of being idiots, look into it. And jmusicnman, if she's so "talent less" which you can't even spell, tell that to the millions who watch all of her shows, Mr. Successful. Too bad you can't personally email the people who are that stupid. It would be very gratifying. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously? You didn't say how to get the steaks out of their packaging. Now what do I do?!?!? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was going to be rude and mean but anyone with common sense knows that to do so would just be disrespectful so I‘ll say this instead: RR is overrated and talent less. I have made a number of her recipes and every one of them turned out bad and/or I had to change to add that weird thing that I like in my food: flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks, but you forgot to mention that we will also need a stove and electricity. The recipe might be a little complicated for some viewers. You should go into all of the intricate details of turning the stove on, where on the skillet to add the ham steaks, and how to get them on a plate without burning yourself. Is there some way to cook them without cutting them in half? Will you do a follow up of this recipe? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. Before this I was just eating my ham steaks frozen of out of the freezer. It's just too bad I didn't learn about this recipe before I contracted the tapeworms. Make sure it's olive oil and not gasoline too. I tried substituting gasoline for olive oil. Even though gasoline comes from petroleum oil, you can't use it as a cooking oil. Oh, another note, if your kids ingest gasoline and they start vomiting, it's best to call poison control. Don't let them go to sleep. It's not a good idea. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wanting to be extra sensitive to the response of the virgin olive oil the first time I opened it up – that it wouldn't become too agitated and would be ready to be used again as soon as possible – I kept the heat at a delicate level and left the massive ham meat in for the briefest time possible. Now the oil is spoiled for anything but that meat, and I have trichinosis. Thanks Rachael. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ham and olive oil....wow, what a stupendous idea Rach. Thanks for writing the package directions as a recipe. I guess this is for the great FN unwashed who can't open a can without directions. I on the other hand would use some butter, spicy mustard and honey to make an actual recipe. Just how dumbed down do you intend to get? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't like this recipe, but I tried it a second time and made some changes: I substituted the ham for a combination of chicken legs and thighs, pearl onions, lardon, mushrooms, a medium onion, celery, carrots, garlic, thyme, and a bay leaf. I substituted the EVOO for salt, pepper, flour, butter, red wine, tomato paste, and chicken stock. I then made Alton Brown's Coq au Vin recipe. Now, THAT was so much better (and a little more time consuming). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, this is not really a recipe, more like a simple heating method. I guess we'll have to look forward to Rachel's new show, "3-minute meals", where she simply plops food into a hot pan or skillet and heats it up. Personally, I could cut that cooking time down to 30 seconds by nuking those steaks at power level 2. Good heavens...do you know how many recipes I could show the viewing audience in a 30-minute time span if I could only have my own show? Just imagine all the microwavable foods that could now be endorsed by Food Network! By the way, why did she not specifically identify her olive oil as EVOO this time around? Is it OK to use trampy non-virgin olive oil instead? She really needs to be more precise and consistent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hey Rachael Haters - This ham steak recipe is part of her Egg Pasta Frittata recipe & is to be served along with it. Don't be so quick to judge! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very impressed with this recipe. I am newly married and was given ham steaks and I didn't know what to do with them. This was the easy solution to cooking these steaks; my husband and father loved the steaks. I love Rachael and Food Network, they have helped me in learning to cook. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sometimes one needs to remember that a simpler dish will enhance the side dishes. I was looking for the 'perfect' ham steak recipe when I found this and I appreciated the reminder that I have permission to keep it simple. I am really surprised at the effort it took to pass judgement on one recipe. I pass up more recipes that do not appeal to me than those that do but don't feel complelled to lash out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to agree with the other reviewers. I think the reason it is so upsetting is because she makes an ENORMOUS amount of money and she doesn't even have to make up the recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you don't like it, you don't have to do it again. Why do people have to be nasty to or about Rachel? item not reviewed by moderator and published
What to do with that extra ham from Easter? Rachel Ray ham steaks are a must and are not that difficult to prepare. I did make a few modifications that I feel are needed to make this dish even better. Do not, I repeat do not cut the ham steaks in half. This could cause them to release some of the delicious juices. Also, just use olive oil instead of EVOO. The whole virgin thing is over rated. I did not have any peas or carrots to accompany my ham steaks. Instead, I used some leftover bread which I toasted up and topped with some grape jelly. My large skillet was still hot, so I fried a couple of eggs just until the edges were crispy. A glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc would be perfect with this dish, but I settled for coffee. Rachel Ray should build a restaurant empire around her ham steak recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Rach has done it again elevating the lowly pig to soar with such simplicity and elegance. Who would think that ham fried in olive oil could be this good? A complicated recipe best attempted by those who have advanced knowledge and experience. Dare we call this a mere recipe when it is more a philosophical statement worthy of serious debate about our Rachel's place in the halls of gastronomy? item not reviewed by moderator and published
come on. This should have never made it on the show or the website. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pathetic item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously, this is a recipe????? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an insult to even call this a recipe. And it is a waste of good EVOO. RR, I hope you served something better than this on Easter! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Reheating already cooked ham and calling it a recipe? At least she pairs it with a couple of sides. This really shouldn't have been listed as a "recipe." I also agree that it is a waste of good olive oil. A teeny bit of butter would have worked just fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I find the use of olive oil to be completely unnecessary here. The ham steak can simply be heated through in a pan filled with a small amount of water, or grilled on a grill pan. It actually IS possible sometimes to cook something without the ever so precious extra virgin olive oil. Perhaps Ms. Ray should try it once in a while. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i personaly do not like ham but my family does and i think anyone will like it item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't believe some of these comments, If you are going to be cooking you know you have to have electricity, a stove or oven, unless you are cooking outside, Most people know how to turn a stove on, what difference does it make where you place the steaks in the pan, and if you are any kind of cook, you should know how to use utensils to get the food out of the pot. If you don't know any more than his, then maybe you should just get take out, or do you need instructions on that too ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
