  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 boneless fully cooked ham steak (1 pound)

"This is a family favorite! Wonderful flavor and very simple to make. My husband thought it would be a good "company's coming" recipe. And the Nutty Broccoli recipe that's recommended to go with it is a nice complement!"

"This is such a quick and easy recipe to make. However, the onions are not the best thing to put with this. Having a piece with no onion was heavenly and it took away the flavor of the rest. Before putting the ham in the pan, I did pat both sides with brown sugar and instead of apple juice I used apple cider because it brings out more flavor than juice. It turned out fabulous otherwise and I will be making this again."

"I used my own home canned apple butter for this. This is easy and good. Next time I will try olive oil or part olive oil to replace all or part of the butter."
