Hi , Phyllis here from southern frugal dot com .
I wanted to show you what we're gonna have for lunch because some of you might not know that you can get the , uh , center cut ham steak and it makes a really quick meal .
Now , I hope you can see that price 4 68 at Walmart .
And you can get probably five servings out of this .
It's about 3/4 of an inch thick and all you have to do is cook it for about four minutes on each side .
Now I'm gonna open this up and dry it off with some paper towels and put it in the skillet .
Now , the skillet needs to have a little bit of , uh , oil or Crisco .
I like to use Crisco .
And just grease it just a little bit .
You don't want a whole bunch of grease in there because then it'll be just popping everywhere .
So grease , it just a little bit and let it get good and hot .
Now you wanna cook this on medium .
Now , I'm gonna just use my scissors and cut it open and try not to get the , the , um , water from it on your counter if you can help it , just cut it around .
Cut that center section .
Oh , the camera almost fell off .
Excuse the jiggling .
But we're gonna go ahead .
We do reality videos .
So if anything happens , it still gets on the , the tape .
All right .
I'm going to need more paper towels to dry this off again .
Get it just as dry as you can get it .
Let me turn that down just as dry as you can get it .
Skill it .
Of course , again , its own medium .
I'm gonna take the whole thing just like it comes from the pack and drop it right in .
Now it's gonna have to cook for , I would say at least four minutes on each side .
And what I'm looking for is I'm wanting it to get some brown on that , on on each side .
Now we're gonna have this for lunch and we're having this with some steamed cabbage and potatoes and some of the fried bread .
So after this gets brown on one side , we'll be back .
Now , I wanted to point this out to you when uh frying out this ham , I generally take some paper towels and just soak up all that liquid that's gonna cook out of it because if you leave the liquid in there , it's not gonna brown as well .
So I just soak up as much of that as I can cause some water will definitely come out once it starts cooking more paper towels , put that water out as much as you can .
That way it will brown a lot nicer .
So it's got about about three more minutes and I'm gonna turn my bunny up to medium high time .
We'll be back .
All right .
My ham has been cooking for about really four minutes and you can see it's burning some in the pan there .
So it's time to turn it over now and I did turn my butter up to medium high .
So I'm gonna turn it back down now and I'm gonna just put it around on that dark , almost dark part there and get some of that brown up on the meat and you can fix these on the grill .
But to me going outside and you know , firing up the grill is not worth it and you need to fix it in really , probably less than 10 minutes right in your kitchen .
So , ok , so we're gonna let that cook for , let's say another about four minutes and it should be ready .
Now , what I've done , let me show you that it's scraped all around the bottom .
You should get up that dark part that was sticking to the pan because of course more water is cooked out of it .
And I want you to look at that .
It's made a little dark gravy .
You see that , I'm gonna let it cook and for about four more minutes and we'll be back .
All right , we're back and the ham is just about ready .
I'm gonna zoom in on it and let you see , I've turned it over one more time .
Let's see if I can get that in there straight .
There you go .
Oops about that .
Now , here's what I'm gonna do .
Turn my burn down to medium low .
This is leftover coffee from this morning .
This is about two thirds of a cup just gonna pour it right in and this is gonna be a type of what we used to call .
So gravy , I don't really know how other people fix it , but this is the way we fix it .
And you can also , uh , fix this kind of gravy after you fried sausage .
So now I'm just gonna cut my burner off and just let it stay on the stove for a little while and while I get all of the rest of the food ready for the meal .
All right there .
You have it .
See you next time .
