Here is a simple to prepare meal that is sure to please the family, ham steak with Cajun green beans. This is a great meal for the family that is high in protein and low in complex carbohydrates. Which means, if you love to eat, then you can eat this with little to no worries about the waist line.
- 1 (1 1/2 lb) Thick Cut Ham Steak
- 1 lb Green Beans, either fresh or frozen. I personally prefer the taste of fresh over frozen any day.
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1 tsp fresh Thyme
- 3 TBSP Olive Oil
- 1 Garlic clove
- 1 cup diced Tomatoes with Chili’s (Rotel)
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine the paprika and thyme then coat the ham steak evenly on both sides. Heat 1 TBSP olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, and add our ham. Cook until browned
While the ham is cooking, fill a large sauce pan about 3/4 full of water and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, add the green beans and cook until tender. Drain them in a colander and rinse with luke warm water to cool.
Heat the other 2 TBSP of olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat, then add the garlic and cook until golden. Add tomatoes with chilies and salt and cook until slightly reduced. Once reduced, stir in the green beans and cook long enough to get the beans hot once again. Serve them up with the ham steaks and try not too smile to wide while eating this meal. It is about as inexpensive as it is delicious, your family will be asking you to fix it for them again right soon.
