How to Make Glazed Ham Steaks Step by Step
Make the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, ½ tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 minced clove of garlic, and ⅛ teaspoon of ground black pepper together.
Sear the Ham: In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter over medium heat. Add in 16 ounces of cooked ham steaks and cook on each side until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Glaze the Ham: Brush both sides of the ham steaks with your glaze and cook until caramelized, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and slice each ham steak in half. Serve and enjoy.
