I absolutely love this recipe! So Simple, so easy and sooo delicious. I used 2 very large garlic cloves pressed and omitted the fresh cilantro (personal preference). The sweet, garlic, spicy hot glaze was perfect with the grilled ham. I would also use this glaze again with poultry, fish and fresh pork. Thanks, Dorothy.

This was good! The flavour just didn't pack much of a punch, considering the strong flavoured ingredients.

Yummy in our tummy......this was fantastic. I have always enjoyed our ham steaks with jalapeno pepper jelly but the addition of cilantro and garlic put this over the top. I too just made this on the stovetop but would like to try it on the grill (when it gets warmer....lol) . Thank you for posting this delicious glaze for our ham steaks.

This is exceptionally easy to make and very, very good to eat! I used 3 large cloves of garlic thinly sliced and used parsley instead of cilantro (family don't eat it). I cooked the steak in a pan a la Bergy and when it was done, I cubed the meat and served it as a salad topping along with cubes of cream cheese, croutons and roasted sunflower seeds. The remaining jelly I drizzled over as dressing and it was a scrumptious dinner. Thanks for posting. I will make this often.

I loved this recipe-DELICIOUS! I had to use dried cilantro flakes (about 1/2 tsp.) since I didn't have any fresh but it was still great! A wonderful change for ham steaks that is easy and so flavorful. Thank you for a great recipe, Derf!!!

Wow believe it or not but I bought Jalapeno Jelly over 5 yrs ago. I'm glad I finally found a use for it! This was great it was sweet and tangy not spicy as one may think. My boyfriend really loved it thank you!

I used the skillet method also and used apple-jalepeno jelly. I have to admit at first I was very worried because the sauce was well...stinky. But I had faith in the recipe and when we ate it I was very pleased! The sauce gives a very nice undertone to the ham. It is no overpowering at all and almost makes the ham seem like one of the expensive pre-marinated ones you can buy!

Oh the weather outside was frightful~~~~ so BBQ was out but this done in a pan is heavenly. I put the Jalapeno jelly garlic & cilantro in the pan, turned on low, when melted add the ham steak, 5 minutes each side - perfect. I used medium heat to be sure that I didn't burn the glaze - it just bubbles and sizzles around the ham Excellent recipe Derf - simple & very tasty. Thanks
