Creamy Peas with Ham and Onion

The ham and onion add plenty of sweetness, so no sugar is required.


  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces ham steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I use the packaged ham cubes)
  • Ad
  • 1 red onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon or parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 pound frozen peas, not thawed


Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ham and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion and cook until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add cream, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook until cream just begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Stir in peas, cover, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper and serve. Serves 4 to 6
