Ham Steaks with Irish Whiskey Sauce
SUBMITTED BY: John Michael Lerma
4 ham steaks
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
2 teaspoons onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
¾ cup water or pork stock
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
2 teaspoon good quality Irish Whiskey
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Spray outdoor grill, stove top grill or heavy bottom skillet with cooking spray. Heat to medium-high heat. Melt 1 tablespoon butter and brush ham steaks. Snip fat to prevent curling and grill/fry for 7-8 minutes per side.
In a heavy bottom sauté pan over medium heat, cook onions in remaining butter until translucent. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Gradually add water or stock and return to heat. Add sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer gently for about 2 minutes to cook flour. If sauce seems thick, add more water or stock. Add whiskey and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Place ham steaks on a serving platter and pour sauce over each steak. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
