Ham steak cooked in a nonstick skillet; then glazed with butter, honey and maple syrup can be ready in 10 minutes.
Roasted ham is a popular meal to serve during holiday celebrations; as well as pork loin, whole chicken or lamb.
However, not everyone celebrates with a crowd so making a large ham like this one might be entirely too much food.
Making a ham steak is a great alternative because you get a portion of a whole ham without losing the flavor.
This Honey Maple Ham Steak uses only 4 ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to make on top of the stove from start to finish
We haven't had ham in quite some time and though it's not something we eat often, it certainly makes for a delicious, quick weeknight meal.
What is a ham steak?
Ham steak is a thick slice cut from a whole roast of ham. Some slices come with or without the bone. Bone in cuts; like the one I used will generally cost less.
Ham steaks are not precooked so you need to cook them first. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness, but the internal temperature should be at least 165 degrees F.
Cost per Serving?
- The ham I used was 1 ½ pounds and cost $5.99
- Serving size is 3 ounces per person
- Cost per serving $1.50
Based on the calculations you should be able to feed 8 people, but after removing the bone and excess fat, it really only winds up being enough to feed 4 people.

How do you make Honey Maple Ham Steak?
Start by melting the butter in the nonstick skillet over medium high heat; then add the ham steak and cook 3-4 minutes per side.
Time may vary slightly depending on the thickness, but internal temperature should be at least 165 degrees F.
While the steak is heating, combine the honey and syrup in a small bowl; then whisk until blended.
When the ham is heated through, add the honey and syrup mixture to the pan. Allow it to heat and bubble; turning the ham over to be coated on both sides.
Remove the ham from the pan, cut into portions; then drizzle the glaze onto each serving.
There are so many options to serve with ham, but most of these will take longer than the meal so plan accordingly.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Side Dish: Sour Cream & Chive Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli and Cheese Risotto, Loaded Mashed Potato Gratin or Velveeta Shells & Cheese
Vegetable: Semi-Homemade Green Bean Casserole, Garlic and Herb Creamed Corn, Swiss Vegetable Medley, or Maple Roasted Baby Carrots
If you are cooking for one, you can make as instructed; then save leftovers in an airtight container or wrapped in foil for 3-4 days.
To reheat, follow these instructions:
Microwave: Place the ham on a microwave safe plate with a tablespoon of water; then heat on high for 1 minute.
Stove: Place the ham in a nonstick skillet with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Cover with a lid; then heat on medium heat for 2-4 minutes until heated through.
You can always reheat the ham for another hot meal or eat it cold on a sandwich. However, here are some other recipes where you can utilize leftover ham:
