Pan Fried Ham Steak with Pineapple Chunks

I think we buy a ham steak because it’s easy to work with and relatively inexpensive.  I tend to cut it up in pieces and add it to scalloped potatoes. I’ve never had it with pineapples before and it reminds me of a Hawaiian ham recipe.

This recipe is easy and fast with a total time of just 23 minutes. Serves 4


 1 ham steak, trim and quartered
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
3 8oz cans of pineapple chunks, reserve liquid
1/4 cup orange juice
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large skillet melt two tablespoons butter and pan fry your ham steak pieces until lightly brown. Then transfer to a plate. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to a large saucepan, when butter melts add the pineapple and sauté until caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Remove and set aside. In the same large saucepan add the pineapple liquid and orange juice and cook until it reduces to half, about 5-6 minutes. Whisk in the mustards, then add back in the ham and pineapple. Heat throughout and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Yum Yum!
