Grilled Ham Steaks

Pin It

I am sure many of you throw your share of pork on the grill during the summer.  I know I do. Smoked pulled pork and grilled pork chops come to my mind.  Both are good representations of the other white meat.  But where on earth is the pink part of the pig, you know, the ham?  Do we consume too much of it during the winter and spring holiday celebrations that we leave it for a humble deli sandwich during the summer?  Well, not me.  I think a juicy ham meal is right for all seasons. 

A simple marinade of brown sugar, apricot jam, and Dijon mustard is all you need to achieve a perfectly tasty and juicy glaze for a couple of bone-in ham steaks.  Marinate the ham steaks the night before, then grill them over some glowing embers until caramelized and warmed through.  This is dinner on the table in twenty minutes.  Serve the ham with a side of succotash, some hot biscuits (gotta get to that recipe soon) and sliced peaches (because they taste really good with a bite of ham) and you have a simple and delicious summer supper.

Grilled Glazed Ham Steaks
serves 8

2 bone-in, fully cooked ham steaks patted dry with paper towels (about 3 pounds)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup apricot jam
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

In a small bowl whisk together the brown sugar, jam and mustard until smooth.  Pour the mixture over the steaks and spread to evenly coat both sides.  Cover the steaks with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for medium-high heat.  Grill the ham steaks until warmed through and caramelized, about 4-5 minutes per side.  Transfer to a platter, cover with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
