Maple-Glazed Ham Steaks

Sweet and savory glazed ham steaks.
Maple-Glazed Ham Steaks

Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

These are very simple and quite good. They do not taste like holiday ham, despite a similar familiar glaze. These have a little more zip and the flavor is characterized by the caramelized onions and has no candied ham nature.
Very good as a quick weeknight meal. I would recommend serving this with a potato gratin and some sort of vegetable, perhaps a salad.


  • 2 (14-16 ounces total) boneless ham steaks
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Brown  ham steaks in a grill pan or nonstick skillet; set aside.
  2. Cook onion in butter until  caramelized; set aside.
  3. Stir together glaze ingredients and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reduces to a syrup.
  4. Coat warm ham slices with syrupy glaze and serve topped with caramelized onions.
Serves: 2-3 Time  15-20 min.


  1. OMG - if I could give this more than five stars, I would! As a whole, this recipe is fantastic. Every bite a delight... seriously! But that glaze. Oh my! This is not only a keeper, it's a recipe I will definitely make often. Thanks so much for posting, Sue! Made for Culinary Quest for Team Toasted Tourists. (JostLori)
