Ruth's Simple Glazed Ham Steaks

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

This was the way my Grandma Ruth would make ham steaks for a nice lunch. They go well with potato salad and corn on the cob (I think they go well with any sides!).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim the fat around the edges of the ham steaks.
  2. Melt the apple jelly in a large skillet over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add mustard and pepper; mix in well.
  4. Place ham steaks into skillet and spoon sauce over them to cover.
  5. Cook, uncovered, about 5 minutes per side, basting often.
  6. Turn out ham to a serving platter.
  7. Cut into serving size pieces as desired.

This was perfect for a quick week-night meal. My whole family enjoyed it and I will definitely use this glaze on ham steaks again.

This made us a nice meal. I did half the recipe for just the two of us. Next time I think I would like to brown the ham steak first and then maybe add about 1 teaspoon of brown sugar to the glaze. Thanks for a nice dinner.

Very good glaze for ham. I used the pre-packaged ham slices. I love to serve them as a quick dinner and will be making this again.
