This recipe for Ham Steak Recipe with Brown Sugar Glaze is a fresh change from the standard grilled fare. The steak is glazed with an easy four ingredient brown sugar honey mustard sauce that will leave you licking your chops.
I like to prepare this recipe on the grill but you could do it in a large skillet or under the broiler. For an over the top taste sensation serve with Green Bean Casserole and Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes.
This recipe is perfect for small families or couples who love ham but do not want to bake a full ham. Sometimes those full hams can lead to days and days of eating ham. For a full ham steak dinner enjoy this with any number of side dishes like mac and cheese, potato salad, eggs and fried potatoes, cheesy cauliflower and broccoli casserole, homemade biscuits, baked beans, breakfast casseroles, or fried apples.
Recipe notes and helpful tips

- Leftovers are great in soup recipes like Split Pea Soup Recipe and Ham and Bean Soup.
- Store leftovers in a large zipper bag or airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
How do you make brown sugar ham steak
First you want to preheat your grill to medium heat or about 350 degrees. In a small pan over low heat combine the brown sugar, honey, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar. Simmer over low heat until the brown sugar is dissolved.
Add the steak to the grill over direct heat and baste the top with the honey mustard glaze. Once basted flip and baste the other side. Close the lid and cook for about 4 minutes. While the steak is cooking take a few quick peeks and make sure the fire is not flaring up. Now flip once again and baste the top. Again close the lid and cook for about 4 minutes.

Brush the glaze mixture on the top and place the ham steak under the broiler on low about 3-4 inches from the heat source. Broil for about 3-5 minutes or until the glaze is bubbly and lightly browned. Then flip the ham steak and brush the other side with the glaze. Broil for another 3-5 minutes or until browned.
