This recipe is sort of like a hash converted into a dinner casserole. The frozen, boneless ham steaks are fairly easy to break into pieces. However, if you can’t get them into pieces, just lay them on top of the potato cubes in the pot. Some cured meats (like the ham here) can contain glutens in their preservatives and can be subject to cross-contamination at processing facilities, particularly if they’ve been processed at a facility that also makes sausages with a wheat additive or filler. Use only certified gluten-free ham, if that is a concern.
