Grilled & Glazed Ham Steaks

"This is easy, tasty, and can be made with sugar free preserves. My DH and I love cinnamon so this glaze fits the bill. If you cannot buy a large ham steak, the thin ones work almost as well. Or you might buy a half ham and slice it into steaks at home. I have also just fried the steak on the stove, and then added the glaze to it."

Ready In:




  • Make the glaze in a small saucepan by combining the preserves, mustard, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Cook and stir over low heat until thoroughly combined--about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Score fatty edges of ham.
  • Grill ham over medium coals for 6 to 8 minutes per side, brushing with glaze during the last few minutes of grilling.

  1. This made a tasty dinner - I used my indoor grill, due to inclement weather, and that worked out just fine! The glaze is a nice foil for the ham. Thanks for sharing, WiGal!
  2. Another delish recipe from you. I couldn't find ham steaks at my small grocery store, so sliced off a thick slice from a prepared ham. This was simple to make and the taste was wonderful. Thanks WiGal for sharing another keeper. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
  3. I really enjoyed this! Loved the smoky flavor from the grill. The glaze was a nice light sweetness...not overpowering at all. I'll have to share this with my DS when he is home from college! Thanks for sharing. Made for Holiday tag game.
  4. Pretty good! Cinnamon adds an unexpected flavour!
  5. Yummy! I really liked the addition of sweetness to my ham steaks that this recipe provided. I didn't have apricot jam so I used peach, and I found that my dijon mustard was all gone, so I used spicy brown mustard, and just added a little less than called for. My ham steaks were kind of thin, I would love to try this on thicker steaks because I think it would be even more delicious than the thinner ones were. Thanks for a great recipe that will help me clean out all the ham from my freezer!
