GLAZED HAM STEAKS
I don’t know what you think. I’m not sure about you, but it’s as if Thanksgiving was just a few days ago, and I’m not ready to prepare another big meal. I’m cooking these easy pork steaks instead of whole glazed Ham for Christmas. They’re swift, and I can get my fix of Ham and enjoy a relaxing time on Christmas Day. The ham steaks glazed with glaze are delicious and so easy to prepare that they’ll likely make it into my regular dinner menu, too.
WHAT KIND OF HAM TO USE
I prefer a thick-cut ( half-inch thick) ham steak to make this dish since it creates a more main-dish experience. There are numerous alternatives for ham slices or ham quarters cut into pieces in the store (near refrigerator-free cured cuts of meat), and you could use nearly all of them. If you get Ham that’s cut thinner, you’ll have to cook it for a lesser amount of time in the next step of browning. Making a larger glaze more palatable for your ham pieces is possible.
OTHER GLAZE OPTIONS
My glaze is a sweet, slightly tangy mix that turns into an excellent sticky glaze. You won’t smell the Dijon mustard until the final, but if you do not like Dijon or do not have it on hand, it is possible to use a smoky-sweet-sweet rub that I did to make the recipe for my Glazed Pork Chops recipe.
HOW ARE THE LEFTOVERS?
I enjoyed eating the leftovers from this Ham. It was so delicious that I imagined I’d make this meal often! Glazes like this do not stay shiny and clear even after refrigeration; however, they taste amazing!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH GLAZED HAM STEAKS
I served my Glazed Ham, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and a sweet potato baked in the oven. Still, it is also delicious with classic dishes such as Homemade Mac and Cheese, Potato Salad, Bean Salad, Roasted Broccoli, or Broccoli Casserole.
If you’re looking for something similar to the size of a Christmas Eve dinner, I’d likely pair it with potatoes, Au Gratin, Balsamic Glazed Carrots, Roasted Brussels, and Apple Stuffing made of Walnuts.
1 Cup brown sugar ($0.12)
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard ($0.18)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce ($0.02)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar ($0.02)
1/8 TSP mince powder ($0.02)
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves ($0.02)
2 8oz. ham steaks ($5.00)
1 Tbsp of butter ($0.10)
Mix with brown sugar, Dijon Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and garlic powder, and cloves in the bowl of a small size.
Slice the steaks of Ham into two pieces to make four 4oz. Portions.
Pour the butter into the skillet and cook on medium. When the butter has begun to melt, swirl the skillet around to coat the skillet. Add the Ham and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until browned.
Pour the glaze mix over the ham meats, flip over, and sprinkle the other glaze portion. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side until it is sticky and thick. Serve hot.
