Ham steaks have always been a favorite for a quick dinner and they are even better on the grill! We did a variation of our popular Easy Brown Sugar Glazed Ham for these ham steaks and it was a so flavorful and delicious. Another holiday favorite is our Smoked Cane Syrup Ham.
How to Grill Ham Steaks:
- Mix brown sugar with granulated garlic, dry mustard, smoked paprika, thyme, kosher salt and pepper.
- Whisk in pineapple juice.
- Place in a shallow pan and dip ham steaks in glaze, turning to coat both sides. Set aside while you get the grill ready with hickory or oak for smoke flavor.
- Add ham over indirect heat and pour remaining glaze over ham steaks.
- Close the lid and cook for 15- 20 minutes or until ham reaches 145° internal temperature with a digital thermometer.
- Remove from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
What is Ham Steak Made of?
Ham steaks are a slice from a whole ham. Unlike a whole ham, ham steaks are not usually pre-cooked but being pretty thin slices they will cook quickly. Using a digital thermometer will keep you from over cooking and ending up with dry ham.
Easy Side Dishes to Serve with Ham:
Grilled Asparagus and Grilled Corn on the Cob are super easy to grill along with your main dish. Tons of flavor and always a hit with just about everything you grill. We also love to add a side of homemade mac and cheese or a cheesy hashbrown casserole to round out the meal.
Our Maple Glazed Ham is heated on the grill with a tasty glaze that's perfect for holidays and we always love this Coca-Cola Ham for feeding a crowd. Ham steaks are a great option when you are just looking for a quick weeknight dinner instead of a holiday feast for the whole clan.
Change up the weeknight dinner routine with these glazed ham steaks on the grill. You won't find an easier dinner to make. Grilled ham makes amazing leftovers and is easy to prepare with just a few ingredients.
