Karl’s Ham Steak with Brandied Peach Sauce

Many weeks I will spend the entire week thinking about and planning Sunday’s dinner.  I have had a rough week—broken car, broken shower, broken refrigerator—and I did not feel I had it in me to plan an elaborate meal ahead of time. A plain ham steak, steamed green beans, a simple coleslaw, and a baked sweet potato would have to do. While this is a meal that started off simply, I got carried away.

Karl’s Lemon Ham Steak

When Safeway has a half price sale on hams (after a holiday) I buy a half a ham and cut it into ¾ inch ham steaks to freeze for later. A ham steak is pretty much just a slab of meat. The trick is what glaze do you put on it to dress it up. I have been experimenting with ways to use my marmalades—in other ways than just slathering it on toast and pancakes in the morning.

Karl’s Barbecued Ham Steak with Lemon Thyme Glaze

When Safeway has a half price sale on hams (after a holiday) I buy a half a ham and cut it into ¾ inch ham steaks to freeze for later. While ham steak is good just on its own, it is nice to dress it up a bit. For this Sunday’s dinner, I thought I would try to barbecue the steak and put a lemon glaze on it.

Karl’s Hawaiian Ham Steak

Today, as I was thinking about making a ham steak, I was wondering what I could do that was new and different from the usual brown sugar, vinegar and clove glaze. I have settled on Asian coleslaw for my salad and a sweet potato and peanut soup as my starch. I also planned orange marmalade custard for desert. This is a bit unusual for me. Normally, I decide on what I will do with the main dish and that will lead me to my side dishes.

Karl’s Caribbean Ham Steak

Today, as I was thinking about making a ham steak, I was wondering what I could do that was new and different from my usual brown sugar, vinegar and clove glaze. I made a Caribbean salad last Sunday and I was thinking that a variation of that dressing might work well. Jan thought the using a whole Habanero was a bit too spicy, but go with your own tolerance.

Karl’s Ham Steak

When Safeway has a half price sale on hams (after a holiday) I buy a half a ham and cut it into ¾ inch ham steaks to freeze for later. This is later. The French girl is still with us and I decided to make ham steak, parsley potatoes and coleslaw for dinner.
