Are you recovered from the holidays yet? I could stay home forever if they let me. I’m pretty awesome at never running out of stuff to do. There are a lot of movies to watch, people. So so many recipes to be tested. And of course, a lot of naps to be taken.
I’m not ready to let go of the holidays, and I’m definitely not ready to let go of holiday flavors. It’s crazy to make a whole ham on a Wednesday, but a ham or gammon steak is about as simple as it gets. You can scale back any ham recipe to work as a glaze on a gammon steak, and it’s extra awesome because the whole thing gets glazed, not just the outside.
This Ginger-Glazed Gammon Steak is dripping with ginger, orange, and clove in a sticky syrup. It’s all done in about 10 minutes, and it’s truly heavenly.
Don’t let go of that holiday feeling, kids. Keep the love, and the ham alive. Make Ginger-Glazed Gammon Steaks for dinner. Life is so good.
- 2 gammon or ham steaks
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup orange marmalade
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon hot English mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 cup ginger ale
- Heat your olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook your gammon steaks approximately 3 minutes per side or until it turns light pink with hints of golden brown.
- While your gammon is cooking, mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Don't worry if the marmalade is still chunky. It will melt in the pan.
- When your gammon is cooked through, remove it to a plate and dispose of any fat and liquid that remains in the pan.
- Put the pan back on the heat and add the glaze mixture. You can crank up the heat a bit to get the mixture bubbling. Allow it to bubble until it gets sticky, then add the gammon back into the pan. Give it a minute on each side. Plate your gammon steaks and pour over any remaining glaze.
