Apple-Topped Ham Steak

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. —Eleanor Chore, Athena, Oregon

    The apple mixture is very good. I think it would also be good on top of a pork chop.

    I thought it was ok. Not sure I will make it again. It was a little sweet for me for dinner.

    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.
