Orange Glazed Ham Steak

I love ham steaks, they are so easy to prepare and the whole family loves it. I wanted to try out a new recipe for a glaze to cook them in and found one from Paula Deen. Man was this good! It was the perfect amount of citrus with the ham and I didn't find it too sweet, like some reviewers had mentioned. You can find the original recipe on the FoodNetwork website here.

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 oranges, zest finely grated and juiced
  • 2 (1-pound, 1/2-inch thick) ham steaks
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and boiling water until the granules dissolve. Whisk in the orange zest and juice.
Put the ham steaks in a large baking dish. Pour half of the glaze over the meat, turning once to coat them evenly. Bake for 1 hour, flipping the steaks occasionally and basting them with the remaining glaze. The glaze will thicken and the finished ham will be golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and transfer the steaks to a serving platter. Serve hot.
