Easter is a holiday we always celebrate in Pittsburgh with my in-laws. Ever since the kids were babies – actually before we even had kids (!) – Pittsburgh was where we spent every Easter. My mother in law always spends hours in the kitchen prepping and creating a delicious meal for everyone. Now that she has 11 grandkids and all adult children, it’s time for US (ahem the adult kids) to takeover the meal. Omaha Steaks is a family fave! They sent some hams to the house and we decided to do a big Omaha Steaks Review: Easter Ham Throwdown edition!
Omaha Steaks Review – EASTER HAM THROWDOWN
Let me preface this post with this one statement. My husband and kids were living their very best life creating this Omaha Steaks Review with me! All they needed to hear was one word: HAM. They were hooked immediately. This is how it went down at the McClelland household. Omaha Steaks sent along (3) different hams for us to cook. The best part about Omaha Steaks is that everything comes prepped – you don’t have to worry. Talk about taking the work out of the kitchen!
The (3) hams were all delicious in their own right, but the best was that they were each completely different with their own individual tastes and styles of cooking.
Here are the 3 HAMS we are doing an Omaha Steaks Review Throwdown on:
Ham #1: Spiral Sliced Ham:

Omaha Steaks signature spiral-sliced holiday ham has no water added – nothing added at all, actually – so the natural, flavorful juices bring out that timeless classic flavor that keeps family coming back for seconds. And the spiral cut is more than just good looking! Cutting a ham this way creates more slices, more super-flavorful juicy slices, than any other cut. The perfect, sweet crunchy crust, the super-juicy smoky slices, the whole package… it’s quickly frozen at Omaha Steaks and wrapped in gorgeous gold foil to be delivered to you. When you’re ready to have the most incredible holiday dinner you’ve ever served, just thaw the ham in the refrigerator and then cook it in the oven. Don’t forget – it’s slowly smoked, glazed with brown sugar, and then torched to form the perfect combination of juiciness and crunchy crust.
Ham #2: Peaconwood Smoked Flank Ham

Up to eight hours of meticulous smoking with real pecanwood chips is the secret to transforming this premium pork into unfathomably delicious ham. And to top it off, we add zero artificial ingredients. What you taste is nothing but real smoke and the best ham available anywhere. Our signature method results in a perfect balance of lightly mellow smokiness and delectably juicy, tender texture. But we didn’t stop with smoking… Our Pecanwood Smoked Flank Ham arrives fully cooked, so you barely have to lift a finger in order to indulge in its wealth of smoky goodness. All you have to do is thaw your ham in the refrigerator and it’s ready to slice and enjoy. A Note from the Butcher: The all-natural flank shape of this ham makes it easy to cut – always slice against the grain for maximum tenderness. Of course, if you prefer your ham heated, it only takes minutes in the oven to reach the ideal temp. Don’t wait until your next big family feast to treat your family to this incredible ham – order today!
Ham #3: Duroc Boneless Country Ham

Proper curing is the secret to transforming great pork into great ham. Our butchers expertly cured every ounce of Duroc pork with a timeless combination of water, salt, and sugar. Through this process, they amplify the pork’s naturally rich flavor. After curing, we slow smoke each and every Duroc Ham up to 8 hours with real hickory wood smoke. This elaborate method results in the perfect balance of savory, juicy flavor (with just a hint of smoky depth) and delectable, tender texture. But we didn’t stop with smoking… Plus, our Duroc Boneless Country Ham arrives fully cooked, so you barely have to lift a finger in order to indulge in its wealth of savory goodness. All you have to do is thaw your ham in the refrigerator and it’s ready to slice and enjoy. Of course, if you prefer your ham heated, it only takes minutes in the oven to reach the ideal temp. Don’t wait until then next big holiday feast to treat your family to this incredible ham – order today!
When you first get your Omaha Steaks package(s) – make sure you read the instructions for each item. They make it very easy and simple and doable for anyone to make. This is another thing I love and appreciate about them. I’m telling you – when my husband started cooking the hams – you could smell the sweet aroma down the street! My sons walked in the door from school and were mesmerized!
“What’s that smell?” they all asked.
And so… the HAM THROWDOWN was an immediate hit with the kids!
Are you ready to see our family get into the throwdown?

My personal Omaha Steaks Review:
All of the hams were PHENOMENAL. I mean – if you’re a ham eater – you can’t go wrong. I personally loved the Spiral Ham because of the glaze. The brown sugar just was delicious and really just melted in your mouth. As you could tell – all of us had a different answer!!
Check out my other Omaha Steaks posts, too! It’s very important to keep in mind that they do more than just (well) STEAK! I feel like I was one of those people a long time ago that thought they just must do steak! There’s so much and then some! Breakfast… easy meals… desserts! For every holiday you have coming up, Omaha Steaks can help you out! It’s absolutely delish! I’m pleased to share with you all the good things that they have to offer!
Share with me some of your fave meals from there!
