Mix together spinach, greens, onions, celery, red pepper, salt, and potato flakes. If necessary, trim ham steaks to fit into a 6-quart pressure cooker. Pour water into pressure cooker. Place one ham steak on cooking rack or in steamer basket in pressure cooker. Spread spinach mixture evenly over the ham steak. Place the other ham steak on top of the spinach mixture.
