Ham steak is traditionally thought of as a breakfast item, but properly prepared, it can be an anytime-of-the-day meal. Use this glaze recipe on a whole ham just double the glaze ingredients.
- Yield: 4 Servings
- 2 peaches, peeled and chopped small
- 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 smoked ham steak, ½-inch thick (about 1-¼ pound)
How to Make It
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the peaches, brown sugar, water, chile powder, mustard, and cardamom. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and peaches start to break down, about 20 minutes.
- Make diagonal cuts, 1 inch apart, into outer edges of ham steak to prevent it from curling up on the grill. On an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan, over medium-high heat, place the ham steak and brush the top with glaze. Cook for 4–5 minutes and turn over. Brush the cooked side with glaze and cook for another 4–5 minutes. Remove to a platter, brush once more with the glaze, and let rest for 5 minutes.
