This gluten/dairy free leftovers w/ ham & peas had so much flavor! The inspiration for this recipe came from my cousin’s friend. We were chatting about what to make with the leftovers from our corned beef and cabbage.
I didn’t have any corned beef left over, but had some ham in the fridge. Then I thought it needed something green. Ham and peas just go together, don’t they?!
In the past I have taken the vegetables out of the slow cooker when we were finished with our corned beef & cabbage dinner. Then I added a whole chicken and more water or bone broth if needed. Cooked the chicken over night on low. You could make it just for the pulled chicken for the week and freeze the broth for later use. You could make chicken noodle soup with it, or make some gravy with it and mash the leftover potatoes and carrots to go with the chicken. Or, throw a pork butt in the leftover broth for pulled pork.
Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…
This is the Ham I used…
Leftovers w/ Ham & Peas
- PLACE 1 ham steak into skillet and turn on the stove to a medium high heat.
- LET the steak sear for about 5-7 minutes on each side.
- REMOVE the steak from the skillet and set aside.
- ADD 1-2 tbsp. of your left over corned beef and cabbage juice into skillet. Scrape the good brown bits from the steak off of the bottom of the pan.
- STIR in 1 tbsp. dried thyme and 1 tbsp. dried tarragon; Stir for one minute.
- ADD from your left over corned beef and cabbage dish; potatoes, carrots, onion, cabbage, and some of the liquid.
- CUT the ham steak into bite size and put it back into the skillet.
- ADD some frozen peas and heat through.
I didn’t need to add any S/P to my leftovers w/ ham & peas. The pickling seasoning from the corned beef and cabbage and the ham were just enough.
I’m trying to figure out bloglovin! It’s all new to me, but seems interesting enough to play around with it.
