Split-Pea Soup with Ham
Don't have a leftover ham bone? No problem. Just buy a precooked ham steak.
Why This Recipe Works
We developed our Split-Pea Soup with Ham recipe to turn this “day-after" soup into a weeknight meal. We replaced the hambone with a ham steak, chopping the meat fine so it blended into the soup. Cooking the ham steak with the vegetables ensured that its flavor fully permeated the soup. Before adding the dried split peas to the soup, we made sure to thoroughly check for any tiny pebbles.
