  • 1 ham steak (1-1 1/4 lbs)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat Grill:
  • Preheat your grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit).
  1. Prepare Glaze:
  • In a saucepan over low heat, combine the brown sugar, honey, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Simmer the mixture over low heat until the brown sugar is completely dissolved.
  1. Grill the Ham Steak:
  • Place the ham steak on the preheated grill over direct heat.
  • Brush the top of the ham steak with the prepared brown sugar glaze.
  • Cook for 4 minutes with the lid closed.
  • Flip the ham steak, brush the other side with more glaze, and cook for an additional 4 minutes with the lid closed.
  1. Serve:
  • Once grilled to perfection, remove the ham steak from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Slice and serve the grilled ham steak with any remaining glaze drizzled on top.


  • Ham Steak Selection: Bone-in ham steaks are the most tender and flavorful.
  • Sweetener Substitute: You can use pure maple syrup instead of honey in the glaze.
  • Grilling Tips: Keep an eye on the grill to prevent flare-ups.
  • Seasoning: Season with salt and pepper to taste, but go easy on the salt as ham is already cured with salt.
  • Leftovers: Store any leftovers in a large zipper bag or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
