sweet ham steaks

We love ham and enjoy it on more occasions than just Easter.  Because there are just two of us, we never actually buy a whole ham...too many leftovers!  Instead, I opt for ham steaks.  They are inexpensive and each produces 4 servings, which is enough for us to get 2 meals out of it.

Ham steaks really just need to be heated up, but I enjoy giving them a special touch.  I place one or two ham steaks in a small baking pan.  I sprinkled 1/3 cup brown sugar over the top and then poured a small can (6 ounces) of pineapple juice over that.  Then, I covered the pan with foil and baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (or until heated through).

It's quick, easy, and requires few ingredients - the perfect dinner when served alongside a baked potato and salad!  The pineapple juice and brown sugar form a delicious marinade that brings out the best flavors in the ham.  I encourage you to take advantage of all of the ham steaks on sale now that Easter is over and give this method a try.  It's delicious!

  1. This is how mom always made it on holidays. With half a cup of 7UP added, and pineapple on the top.
    It's very good.

  3. This sounds so yummy. I am going to try and get one tomorrow at the market. I didn't have ham this Easter and I miss it. Thank you for the recipe.

  4. That's almost how I cook a whole ham....Only I used crushed pineapple with the juice, brown sugar and some coca-cola!! Best ham EVER!!!
