2) Marinate the fresh pork ham

Brush the fresh pork ham all over with the previously prepared marinade.

3) Place the marinated ham on a tray

Place the ham on a tray and pour water or wine (if used) so that the ham is submerged about three-quarters of its thickness.

Cover the tray with aluminum foil to seal it, then place it inside the preheated oven at 180C/360F for about 1 hour.

5) Remove the foil when the ham is baked

When the ham is baked and the water/wine is low, remove the foil and place back the tray in the oven at 290C/550F for about 20 minutes or until the pork ham steak is golden brown.

Stop the heat in the oven and wait about 30 minutes for the pork ham to rest before slicing it up as desired.

8 PRO Tips for the Oven-Baked Ham Steak Recipe

  • The ideal thickness for this recipe of oven-baked ham steak is about 5 cm/2 inches, if it is thicker it is possible that the ham will remain hard inside, while if it is thinner the steak may dry too much.
  • While the ham is cooking under the foil, make sure there is enough wine or water in the tray, if necessary add a little more.
  • The use of wine is not mandatory, however, I recommend you include it in the recipe because it offers an extra flavor that makes the difference between a dish worthy of any gourmet and a basic meal.
  • If you have time, I recommend marinating the fresh ham and leaving it in the fridge until the next day.
  • I advise you not to remove the layer of fat from the edge, it gives an extra flavor and protects the meat from excessive drying. In addition, the taste of roasted pork fat is truly divine!
  • For a spicy taste of the pork roast, use a bit of hot chili powder when preparing the marinade.
  • It is very important not to rush when the pork ham steak is ready to let the meat soak up the juices and cool a little, this will allow you to cut whole slices without breaking the meat into pieces.
  • I recommend serving the oven-baked pork ham steak with a sauce because the ham meat is quite dry, some of my favorites for this recipe include cranberry sauce, dried plum sauce, or garlic sauce. Of course, a hot salsa sauce is also perfect if you like spicy food!
