Easy Christmas Ham Steak
Not every holiday gathering involves a dozen people and at least that many pies. Sometimes a simple but elegant meal that doesn’t take all day is the best gift ever. Our recipe for Christmas ham steak is perfect for an intimate dinner or as a main course for holiday buffet. With only 5 ingredients it’s easy and economical but still tastes special enough for a celebration meal. Pair our Christmas ham with au gratin potatoes and Savory Roasted Brussels Sprouts and a bakery-shop pie for a complete meal that you didn’t have to spend days preparing.
As mentioned, this recipe has only 5 ingredients — including the ham — and 3 of them are coconut-based. Using coconut sugar and coconut nectar syrup instead of brown sugar and molasses will prevent the glaze from becoming overly sweet plus the coconut products add a more complex flavor to this simple dish. Because ham is the star of the show, be certain to choose high-quality cooked ham steak about 3/4-inch thick. Approximately 1lb of steak is enough to serve four people.
