Honey-Bourbon Ham Steak

Recipe from: Born to Grill by Cheryl and Bill Jamison Cookbook Heaven at

Ham and honey are a dynamic duo, balancing saltiness and sweetness. Add a little smoky sour-mash whiskey to this honey-bourbon ham steak and you’ve got a trio that’ll dance on your tongue all night. Since the ham here is already fully cooked, we’re just heating it and caramelizing the glaze to get a delectably browned surface. Nothing could be simpler or much more sublime.

Servings: 4

Two 1-pound fully cooked bone-in ham steaks, about 1/2 inch thick
Honey-Bourbon Ham Glaze:
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons bourbon or other similar American whiskey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, roasted and mashed
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

1. Prepare the glaze, combining ingredients in a food processor.
2. Fire up the grill, bringing the temperature to high (1 to 2 seconds with the hand test).
3. Grill the steaks uncovered over high heat for 7 to 9 minutes, turning once midway and brushing with the glaze, and glazing again in the last couple of minutes of cooking. If grilling covered, cook for 6 to 8 minutes, glazing and turning in a similar manner. If you wish, pour any remaining glaze over the ham steaks after taking them from the grill. Serve hot.
