$5.48 RECIPE / $1.37 SERVING

I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving feels like it happened yesterday, and I’m not ready to cook another huge meal just yet.

Instead of complete glazed ham steaks, I’m making these incredibly simple ham steaks for Christmas. I get my ham fix and can spend Christmas Day resting because they’re so quick.

These glazed ham steaks are so excellent and so simple that they’ll definitely become part of my regular supper rotation as well.

For making glazed ham steaks, I use a thick-cut (1/2-inch thick) sliced ham steak since it gives it a more main-dish vibe.

In the grocery store (near the refrigerated cured meats), there are numerous possibilities for sliced ham or sliced ham quarters, and you may use almost any of them.

If your ham is thinly sliced, simply cook for a shorter period during the browning step below. If you’re trying to cover more pieces, you may need to produce extra glaze.


This glaze is a sweet and slightly acidic concoction that reduces to a beautiful sticky coating. You won’t taste the Dijon mustard in the end, but if you don’t like it or don’t have any on hand, a sweet-spicy-smoky rub will suffice.


I loved, loved, loved eating the ham leftovers. So much so that I’m thinking of making this a regular dinner prep! After refrigeration, glazes like these don’t stay clear and glossy, but they still taste fantastic!


My glazed ham steaks were served with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and a baked sweet potato.

Still, it would be equally delicious with Homemade Mac and Cheese, Potato Salad, Three Bean Salad, Roasted Broccoli, or a Broccoli Cheese Casserole.

I’d serve it with Potatoes Au Gratin, Balsamic Glazed Carrots, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, and Apple Walnut Stuffing for a small Christmas Dinner.


Glazed ham steaks are a simple meal dish that only requires a few ingredients and takes approximately 15 minutes to cook.

  1. First, prepare the glaze. 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/8 teaspoon minced cloves in a small bowl.
  2. I used ham steaks like these. You can use any type of ham steak you have on hand, but if they’re thinner than 1/2-inches, the cooking time will need to be adjusted.
  3. I cut each of the 8-ounce ham steaks in half to make four 4-ounce servings. Portion your ham as desired.
  4. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. After the butter has melted, swirl the skillet to coat the entire surface. Cook for a few minutes on each side, or until the ham is browned.
  5. Half of the glaze mixture should be poured over the ham steaks, then flip them over and repeat.
  6. Cook for another minute or two on each side, or until the glaze has thickened.

Serve the glazed ham steaks immediately with your favorite side dishes!
