Apricot Ham Steak

Ham is a versatile main menu item that's a standby with all country cooks. One of the best and easiest ways to serve ham slices is topped off with a slightly sweet glaze, like this apricot version. —Scott Woodward, Shullsburg, Wisconsin

    I found this recipe disappointing based on the other reviews and how good it sounded. I used a good quality ham steak so that part was fine but the sauce was not flavorful. I would try it again but only if I used a high quality apricot preserve that had more apricot flavor that would hold up when heated. The sauce wasn't overpowering but only tasted sweet.

    Loved it! Just the right amount of sweet with ham and not overpowering.

    Very good! I used a 1-pound ham steak, which I cut into serving-sized pieces before sautéeing it in the butter, and I added the apricot sauce to the skillet and let it cook gently for a couple of minutes, just to get a nice glaze on the ham. I'll make this again for sure.
