Quick and easy dinner for two.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Remove rind and trim off all but 1/4-inch of outer fat. Cut ham into two serving pieces. Score the fat edge at 1-inch intervals so the steak does not curl during cooking.
  2. Lightly saute, ham on both sides in butter for 3-4 minutes a side. Remove ham steak to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Add diced apples and saute until somewhat soft. Stir in mustard and cider and reduce until the cider has almost entirely evaporated.
  4. Slowly wisk in the heavy cream and reduce until slightly thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper and spoon sauce over steak.

Loved the flavors. Pork and apples being a classic combo it would be hard to go wrong there. The thing that I have to mention is that the apple juice, mustard and cream didn't like each other much. As soon as I added the cream to the pan it separated and looked curdled. It's fresh cream that I got yesterday and was opened tonight and it's fine. Perhaps my heat was too high? I didn't add any salt as ham is so salty on it's own and I didn't think that pepper spots would look nice in the pic. Over all this is very tasty and quick to make (always a +) and we enjoyed it.

This was a nice change from the normal ham dinner. I felt it was a bit too sweet for me tho. Im not sure if the apple cider brought too much of a "desserty" taste to the ham, then adding the apples and heavy cream kinda made the sauce seem like something I would want on my ice cream not ham. But still this was a very intereting recipe that I am glad I tried and I bet people with more risk taking taste buds would really enjoy it.
