Ham Steak – Eleri Stone


Fun fact: Iowa is the #1 pork producing state in the United States. Go us! This time of year, we grill like crazy so I thought I’d share one of our favorites.


Ham Steak

In a saucepan, heat until well-blended:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup horseradish (Coarse ground horseradish, not the creamy sauce. I personally like a little more
horseradish, about 1/3 cup but since this is my husband’s recipe…)

1/4 cup lemon juice

Let it cool to thicken up a bit.

Score the ham steak, grill until nearly done and then brush sauce over the steak.

Easy, easy, easy. And delicious! And cheap! The new pork slogan is “Pork: Be inspired” and clearly you can see why. Here’s a picture of my husband preparing the steak.

There’s really no way to make that pretty, is there? See the horseradish sauce in the background. DON’T BUY THAT SAUCE. I bought the wrong kind and had to run out to the store for the real stuff.
