Don’t want to cook a large ham but want a flavorful ham steak? Try this easy ham steak and pineapple rings recipe for a beautiful dinner recipe.
This Slow Cooker Ham Steaks and Pineapple Rings recipe turned out amazing. I was thumbing through one of my favorite cookbooks “The Whistle Stop Cafe” by Fannie Flagg, and saw a recipe for ham steaks and pineapple rings, and I knew I had to create a recipe with ham steaks for my slow cooker. I’m a huge fan of Fannie Flagg, her fiction books are upbeat, funny, and just homey and I just love her cookbook too!
