When firing up that grill for your next meal, don’t forget about a ham steak. And this fabulous brown sugar, horseradish glaze is a perfect flavor compliment for salty ham. Zesty Grilled Ham Steak is great for breakfast or a quick and easy dinner.
Do you ever purchase those packaged ham steaks at the grocery store? And if so what do you do with them?
I’ve always thrown them on the grill. You can’t beat a ham steak for a quick easy Summer meal and with minimal cleanup. It’s a winner.
To complete that Summer meal, simply serve grilled ham steak with Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes.
You can find them in the meat department, next to the fresh pork cuts. They’re packaged, usually weigh in at a pound and they’re lean and delicious.
You can even ask your butcher to cut you a ham steak for you for the juiciest and tastiest option. I’ve never done that, but next time I’m at my upscale butcher shop, I’ll give it a try.
The grilling Gods were kinder this past Sunday. Winds had died down and smoke from New Mexico wildfires had all but vanished. Hitting the deck early, I grilled up a ham steak for breakfast. I cubed some potatoes, parboiled them, patted them dry, tossed them in olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and had a wonderful side of grilled potatoes to serve. Parboiling them insured that they were done about the same time as the ham.
In no time we were enjoying a wonderful breakfast from the grill. And with any ham steak, you’ll need a good ham steak glaze. And if you like horseradish, you’ll find this an easy and very flavorful recipe.
I’ve had this recipe for the grilled ham steak glaze for-EVER. Probably thirty years. It’s full of flavor, and a perfect partner for salty ham.
And the leftovers were wonderful the next morning made into Ham Hash with Mustard Cream Sauce. Let’s take a look:
