Ham Steaks with Maple-Bourbon Glaze
These ham steaks—dressed up with a flavorful glaze on the grill—make a quick and hearty meal special enough for company. Serve with mashed sweet potatoes, green beans with bacon and hot wedges of buttermilk cornbread.
2 fully cooked bone-in ham steaks, about 1/2-inch thick
3 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
2 tablespoons bourbon
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
- Prepare medium-hot fire in grill.
- In small bowl stir together syrup, bourbon, soy sauce, garlic and mustard.
- Grill ham directly over fire for 5 to 8 minutes, turning and brushing with glaze during last couple minutes of cooking. Remove ham from grill and brush with any remaining glaze.
Makes 8 servings.
Note: For gas grills, preheat and then turn off any burners directly below where the food will go. The heat circulates inside the grill, so turning the food is not necessary.
