Do you ever crave a big home cooked meal but you have no big family meal planned for weeks? Sometimes I want a turkey, roast beef or ham dinner but the extended family is nowhere to be seen. A single ham steak is a perfect way to solve this little problem.
When I think of a thick slice of perfectly cooked ham, I automatically think of a sweet and slightly tangy glaze. For this particular meal, I wanted maple syrup as my sweet so I decided to combine it with dijon mustard and a grill. The glaze is a perfect complement to the smoky flavor of the grilled ham and fed my home cooked meal craving without all of the big meal fuss. Perfect! And the leftover sandwiches make this feel so homey!
Grilled Maple and Mustard Glazed Ham Steak Recipe
- Ham sreak, bone in
- 1/4 Cup Maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
- 1 tsp Apple Cider vinegar
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- 2 tsp Vegetable oil
- In small saucepan, make sauce by adding maple syrup, mustard and vinegar. Stir and heat over medium heat. Coat each side of ham steak very lightly.
- Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat. Brush on a small amount of vegetable oil. Use more oil only as needed. Do not put too much liquid in the pan.
- Add ham to pan. Cook on each side for 6-8 minutes, watching for grill marks. Lightly brush on more sauce as ham dries, without allowing too much liquid in pan. Serve when both sides are browned nicely with another brushing of the glaze.
