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

"Nice quick recipe to make on a weeknight. This tasted great. I only had one ham steak (which was only about half an inch thick, but was over 1 lb), but I still made the full amount of sauce, and there was plenty! I needed to use up some apple cider anyway. I also left out the cloves and the raisins. I did not feel that this was too sweet at all."

"This is a very good recipe for the sweet tooth lovers. I love brown sugar ham and mixed with the cider it's awesome. I didn't use cloves or raisins because I don't care for either and I had pan fried it instead of oven, but I'll definitely try it in the oven next time."
