Dijon-maple glazed ham steaks with pineapple

I don't have ham steaks as often as I'd like. As you might have already gathered from almost all my other posts, I love the sweet and salty combination of well, anything salty and anything sweet together.

So with this recipe I wanted to go really sweet on the sauce, and I got cured, deliciously salty ham steaks.

Look at this beauty:


Dijon-maple glazed ham steaks
Servings: 2
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 15 min

2 smoked ham steaks (you pick the size!)
4 pineapple rings
1/2 tsp brown Splenda
1/2 tsp white vinegar
1/8 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste

In a small pot, mix the Splenda, vinegar, juice, mustard, syrup, salt and pepper. Whisk everything together very well over medium-low heat. Let it come to a boil then simmer for about 5 min.

While the sauce is cooking, heat a pan to medium-high heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray. Cut a couple of gashes into the ham steak and place them on the pan. Cook for about 45 seconds on each side, brushing some of the dijon-maple sauce on. Flip over and cook until warm all through and golden.

Place the pineapple slices in with the ham on the pan, cooking for 45 seconds on each side as well, until warm. Feel free to brush some of the sauce on them too!

To serve, place the steak on a plate, top with the pineapple slices and pour the sauce over it.

Potatoes in any form are pretty good with this dish! The sweetness of the sauce and pineapple with the saltiness of the ham is to die for!

  1. The ham looks pretty nice indeed!

    I believe you'd like my mom's potato salad that takes apples! It would also go good with this dish!
