Grilled Ham Steak

Finally the weather warmed up and the wind made grilling possible.  Every available spare inch on the grill surface was filled with potatoes, corn on the cob and this ham steak.  Since I'm not a fan of mustard, I made a simple marinade and sauce to brush on while grilling that contained Heinz 57 sauce.  It wasn't overly tomato and sugar flavors like ketchup and still had the vinegar undertones.





Grilled Ham Steak

1 ham steak, approximately 1/2" thick
1/4 cup Heinz 57 sauce
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp brown sugar


Trim the excess fat, if any, from the outside of the ham steak.  This will prevent fire flare ups.  Pour half the marinade mixture into a gallon size plastic bag that seals.  Add in the ham steak and let rest for one hour in the refrigerator.  Place the ham steak on your pre-heated grill.  Brush on the leftover sauce,  Flip with browned side and repeat brush on the marinade on the 2nd side.
