4 Ingredient Flavorful Meal for your Family in under 60 minutes

This recipe is Paleo, Whole 30 firendly, and gluten-free. YAAS! Last week I posted a very simple 3-ingredient meal of green beans, potatoes, using our forest-raised ham steak. YUM! This week I’ve created a recipe that is just as simple as I add only one more ingredient! This is an easy one-pot meal.

This recipe has very simple prep and could be adapted for the crockpot if you’re in a hurry. If you go the crockpot method I’d recommend throwing all the ingredients in and letting it cook for 8 hours on low heat. Check your meat with a thermometer (165 degrees) before serving.


  • FunGuy Farms Ham Steak
  • 1 Small Red Onion Diced
  • ¬†3 Stalk of Celery diced
  • 1lb frozen or canned peas
  • (optional add chopped or diced carrots-not seen in this recipe)


  1.  Make sure your ham steak is thawed to room temperature. Heat your pot over medium heat and brown ham steak on both sides for 4 minutes per side.
  2. Remove ham steak and let rest on cutting board.
  3. Add diced onions and celery to pan and carmelize for a few minutes then add peas.
  4. Dice ham into bite-size pieces and add back to pot.

5. Fill the pot with water ensuring that the water covers the ham fully. (A few inches from the top of the pot to avoid overpour.)

6. Let simmer on low to medium heat for 45 minutes and stir every 15 minutes.

7. Mush some of the peas with a spoon to thicken the soup or add cornstarch if you are wanting a thicker consistency. (We like it like a soup so I left it pretty thin.)

Serve and enjoy!

*Salt and pepper are optional but our forest-raised ham steaks are packed with rich natural flavor!*
