Honey Glazed Hamsteak (Dinner for Two)
When you’re cooking dinner for one or two, holiday meals can be daunting. All of that food! So many leftovers! Fortunately, ham steak exists. That means instead of buying a whole ham, you can buy a slice of ham from a ham roast. Fry it on the stovetop or bake it in the oven.
The best part about cooking a ham slice dinner is it doesn’t take long to cook at all. You can have this ham steak recipe ready in 15 minutes.
1 tablespoonoil (omit if baking)
1 package of Jubilee ham steaks
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon pineapple juice (from canned pineapple tidbits)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup canned pineapple or crushed pineapple, drained
TO FRY HAM STEAKS
First be sure both steaks will fit in your pan, if not I recommend the baking method below or fry your steaks in batches.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the ham. Cook until brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Flip and cook the other side until brown, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk together the honey, pineapple juice, brown sugar, mustard, and paprika.
Turn the heat down to low and add the honey mixture to the empty skillet. Cook until bubbling, about 1 minute. Tilt the pan so the glaze covers the surface of the pan.
Add the ham back into the pan, coating one side with the glaze. Cook 1 minute.
Flip and coat the other side with the glaze. Cook 1 minute.
Add the pineapple tidbits and stir into the glaze (you may need to move the ham around, depending on how large your skillet is).
Remove ham from the pan then serve with pineapple and remaining glaze spooned on top.
TO BAKE HAM STEAK
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease your pan.
In a medium bowl whisk together the honey, pineapple juice, brown sugar, mustard, and paprika.
Add your ham to the pan and pour the glaze on top, making sure the entire ham is covered. Add pineapple on top.
Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until heated through (145 F) and starts to brown.
