Zesty Grilled Ham Steak

The glaze on this zesty grilled ham steak is easy to throw together. It combines the sweetness of brown sugar, the tartness of lemon, and the kick of horseradish. It makes for a great side for breakfast-for-dinner.Zesty Grilled Ham Steak

This glaze would be great on other pork dishes… such as grilled pork loin or tenderloin. You could also brush the glaze onto bacon just before it’s done baking in the oven.

I love cooking up breakfast on the grill, even if it’s just a side dish or an ingredient I’ll use as part of a bigger dish, like my smoked crumbled breakfast sausage.

My pepper onion beer sauce makes for a great topping for ham!
