Broiler option:

If you need to cook this in the oven, use the broiler method. Place the ham on a baking sheet lined in foil. Coat in glaze and broil 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Make sure to brush on more glaze when you flip the ham. The glaze gives it so much flavor.

This is a quick and easy alternative to the grill when you need an indoor cooking option.

Grilling ham steak tips:

  • Grill temperature. Watch the grill closely to make sure that it doesn’t get too hot and burn the slice of ham steak. You don’t want any flare ups that might scorch the steaks.
  • Flip the ham. Make sure to flip the ham steaks half way through the cooking process and baste.
  • Do not overcook. Cooking ham does not take very long on the grill. You do not want to overcook as it will become tough.
  • Buy bone in ham. Ham steaks that include the bone are often the most flavorful. They are also really tender.
  • Double the recipe. This is the perfect size for a smaller family. Larger families might consider grilling 2 ham steaks.
