Grilled Ham Steak is a super simple dinner that can be prepped and on the table in under 30-minutes! The grill lends a little smoke to the ham that is spiced with BBQ rub and glazed with apricot preserves.
What are ham steaks?
Ham steaks are a thick-cut slice of meat from a whole ham that is pre-cooked. They are a more economical alternative to enjoying ham without buying a whole roast. They come with a bone or without. You can buy low-sodium alternatives as well. Cooking a ham steak is easier than a whole one.
Ham steaks - you will need two, and I used the low-sodium version for this recipe.
BBQ Rub - you will need your favorite, or any generic pork rub.
Apricot Preserves - any off the shelf variety will do.
Season both sides of your ham steaks very well with BBQ rub then set aside.
Clean and oil your grill. Preheat to 350-375 degrees. Place the steaks on direct heat for a few minutes to sear. Flip, and repeat the process for the other side.
Leave two burners on, and move meat to indirect heat. Brush with apricot preserves flip, and coat the other side. Cook for about ten minutes to glaze.
Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to one week. The leftovers are great for breakfast or chunked then baked with au gratin potatoes! If you enjoyed this you might like Grilled Jalapeno Popper Chicken!
