Ham in Cider Sauce Recipe

If you don't want the hassle of making a whole ham, prepare these tasty ham steaks instead. I like to serve these with scalloped potatoes.—Deborah Maki, Kamloops, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • 2 boneless fully cooked ham steaks (1 inch thick and 1 pound each)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups apple cider or juice
  • 1/3 cup raisins


  • 1. Insert cloves into edges of ham steaks; rub steaks with brown sugar. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in apple cider and raisins. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over ham steaks. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes longer or until heated through. Discard cloves before serving. Yield: 8 servings.
