Sweet apples combine nicely with tangy mustard in this dish to create a luscious topping for skillet-fried ham steak. I especially like to serve this to guests in fall.

"I prepared this yummy dish the other night and we loved it. It is easy to prepare and tastes delicious. I used one large ham steak and cut it into serving-size portions for just the two of us. My husband gave it a thumbs up as did I. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
