Skillet Greens with Ham

Skillet Greens with Ham


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 7 oz boneless ham steak, trimmed and diced
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed into a paste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 2 bunches rainbow chard, stems removed, washed, and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp low-sodium chicken stock


  1. Add the oil to your Stargazer Cast Iron skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add ham and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on most sides, about 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Add butter to the skillet, then add onion and cook until softened, 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for another 1 minute. Then add chopped rainbow chard and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until greens have just wilted. 
  4. Add stock and cook until liquid has evaporated. Then add the ham back to skillet and cook for another 1-2 minutes to warm through.
