Ruth's Simple Glazed Ham Steaks

"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!)."

    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.

    Made this for DH and myself for dinner. Only cooked 1 ham steak, so I cut the sauce mix in half. The only change I made was to brown the ham steak first in the skillet, then made the sauce & returned the ham to the pan. Served it with baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter and sweet peas. Yummy, great comfort food.

    Very nice recipe. Made it to accompany apple pancakes for supper. We all enjoyed it. Thanks.


Recently moved to New Mexico from South-East Texas. What can I say, I LOVE to cook! My screen name came from my husband Bert. He calls me his Kitchen Witch, because he says that I "make magic" in the kitchen.Bert works in Emergency Medicine in a local E.R.(That's what brought us here to New Mexico.) He has worked Emergency for about 27 years now, and I call him my "working class hero".(In reference to the John Lennon song.) I have 5 awesome children, 2 step-sons, 2 sons, and a daughter, who because she is the youngest and the only girl, thinks she is a princess.(oh no, she's not spoiled!) I come from a long line of people, on both sides of the family, who were wonderful and creative cooks. I guess that explains my love of cooking and feeding people.I truly get a thrill out of serving food to people who enjoy it.I also love to read, and consume books and information ravenously.I absolutely adore a great mystery.I also would have a hard time surviving without music! I like most all music, from The Beatles, to old Blues(Robert Johnson rocks!) ,to Loreena McKennitt,and Phoebe Snow.I am currently a house wife, due to our recent move.Before that, I worked for several years with abused children in an RTC.(Residential Treatment Center.) My pet peeves are small-minded,prejudiced,mean people and wastefulness. Growing up, my Father taught us that to waste food was a sin when there are so many people in the world starving.I guess that one really stuck with me.I love to meet people with common interests,so Zmail me any time!<img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" width=50%>
