Depends on context, but usually "PROC step" refers to any SAS procedure step.
Sometimes people compare PROC SQL vs DATA step for data management tasks. But that can be a little narrow, as really you have PROC MEANS/SUMMARY for summarization, TRANSPOSE for "flipping" rows/columns, FREQ for counting, etc -- it's a larger suite of procedures to accomplish data-related goals.
