Ham Steaks with Maple Apple Sauce

Hello Dear Reader,


We had quite a lot of ham left over from the boneless leg of ham, that was bought for Christmas. I do love ham and we used about half of it, just with salads and sandwiches for lunches. However, when we had almost one kg of the ham left, I knew this little recipe would take care of the rest of it. I have used this recipe every year, after Christmas and Easter, for a long time now. Whether you have a little or a lot of ham, this recipe will work, you just need to adjust the other ingredients for the amount of ham you have. It is truly delicious and does the beautiful ham justice. The flavours of salty-sweet, are hard to beat and with the addition of apples and maple syrup, it is a match made in heaven.

Ingredients for Ham Steaks with Maple Apple Sauce, clockwise from top right-
2 tablespoons brown sugar, up to a kilo of Ham, sliced thickly, 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced, 30 grams butter, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/2 cup of maple syrup
In a heavy based frypan, melt butter on medium heat and then add ham steaks and gently brown on both sides
Meanwhile peel, core and slice apples
Once all ham steaks are browned, sprinkle over brown sugar and cinnamon
Then add apples and maple syrup, pop a lid on pan, turn heat down to low and let cook away until apples have softened
Serve ham steaks with apples and maple sauce spooned over the top. Delicious!


What is your go to recipe, to use up the Christmas Ham?

  1. I slice the ham thickly, batter and fry them for a lunch served with a fresh salad. I then take the bones with left over meat attached and boil them with been split peas to make an English dub called peas pudding. I also use the hock jnnthe same way but jnnthe slow cooker with carrots and more water to make pea and ham soup.
