Mustard Glazed Ham Steak


  • 1 lb (0.5 kg) ham steak, 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup sieved apricot jam
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Trim excess fat from ham steak. Do not cut into ham.
  2. To prepare sauce, combine mustard, jam, vinegar and cayenne pepper. Reserve half of sauce to serve with ham; use remainder to baste ham.
  3. Preheat broiler. Broil ham on a non-stick foil-lined rimmed baking sheet for 4 - 5 minutes per side, basting occasionally with sauce. Alternatively, ham may be grilled over medium heat on natural gas barbecue.
  4. Cut ham into serving pieces. Serve with reserved sauce.
