Ham Steak Grilled with Brown Sugar

Ham Steak Grilled with Brown Sugar from 101 Cooking For Two
This is a simple post but follows the principles of Cooking for Two... simple with excellent taste for two. Also, if I don't write it down or post it, I'll forget how I did it and be unable to repeat it.

We do an occasional ham steak. Just about the right amount of meat for two. And it will set in the refrigerator for several weeks while waiting for your need for that simple quick meal. I have in the past just oiled the grill and cooked until I have some nice grate marks. I was happy with this method, a nice taste but a bit dry and a little chewy.

I've always like honey bake ham for holidays but I was never happy that that good tasting stuff was many times on fat that didn't taste good. My solution is to brush it on the meat and grill it. Google was helpful in getting me ideas on spicing for oven baked hams but nobody is doing this on the grill. I decided to go with brown sugar not honey but I may do honey next time.

I'm very happy with this. About 5 minutes prep and 10 minutes on the grill.

Notes: We had a wonderful large tomato so we make fake BLTs but just eating straight up would be great.
Tools: Nothing special
Ingredients:
1 ham steak about
1 pound Glaze
2 T brown sugar
1 T butter
1/2 t ground mustard
1/2 t cider vinegar
1/8 t ground cloves

Instructions:
1) Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil grates.
2) Rinse the ham under running water. Pat dry with paper towel and trim any trim-able fat. Cut ham steak in half for easier handling.
3) Mix glaze in a small microwave safe bowl. Mix well. Microwave for 10 sec on high, mix again then 10 sec more on high. This should become liquid. Do a few more seconds if you need to.
4) Immediately brush on ham.
5) Grill on high direct heat for about 5 minutes per side.
