Our family has been ham steak deficient since Niman Ranch stopped distributing to Trader Joes. I can't find the ham steak anywhere in Los Angeles. My calls/email to Niman Ranch have not been returned.My local options are Applegate (merely okay but sustainable) or Neuske (excellent ham steak but conventional). Niman Ranch split the difference and frankly, I am really really annoyed.
The last time I was in SF I did spot the ham steak, which I had assumed was discontinued at the Berkely Bowl. Bur Mr. JudiAU had a big fit when I planned to carry an enourmous bag of ham steaks into Chez Panisse for our tenth anniversary dinner. Seriously, what says love and commitment more than make ample provisions for your future together? And yes, he now very much regrets it.
Ideally a local near the Ferry Building would be great. We always fly random meat and charcuterie home from the market so we'll have ice packs and the like. And thankfully, never a problem with the TSA.
