Recipe for Baked Ham Steaks

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 ham slices (around 8 oz each)
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for added heat
  • Nonstick cooking spray or olive oil for coating

Instructions:

  1. Set the oven to 350°F (175°C) and preheat. Coat a baking dish lightly with nonstick cooking spray or a thin layer of olive oil.
  2. In a separate bowl, blend the dark brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, whole-grain mustard, apple cider vinegar, freshly ground black pepper, ground allspice, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using) to make the glaze.
  3. Lay the ham slices in the greased baking dish. Apply a generous layer of the glaze onto each ham slice, ensuring complete coverage on both sides.
  4. Place the ham slices in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and carefully turn the slices over. Apply more glaze and put the dish back in the oven for another 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 140°F (60°C).
  5. Take the oven-roasted glazed ham slices out of the oven and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.
