Spicy Peach Glazed Ham Steak

Another delicious recipe from Bobby Flay's cookbook, Bobby Flay's Boy Gets Grill: 125 Reasons to Light Your Fire!

I'm not sure if ham and peaches are a classic combination, but they sure taste amazing together.

Spicy Peach Glazed Ham Steak
Serves 4; can be doubled for 6 to 8 (no need to double the glaze)

1 cup peach preserves (I used mashed peaches mixed with spicy jam instead -- this is why I have chunky pieces of peaches in the pics above)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 Tbsp. orange juice, preferable fresh
1 Tbsp. ancho chile powder (I omitted since I thought it might clash with the spicy jam I used)
Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
1 (1 1/2-pound) ham steak, cut 2 inches thick (I used 2 thin ham steaks)

1. Stir the preserves, syrup, orange juice, and the ancho powder together in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper; you want the mixture to be pretty peppery.

2. Heat your grill to high.

3. Place the ham on the grill, close the cover, reduce the heat to medium, and grill for 8 to 10 minutes on each side, basting with he glaze every few minutes.

4. When the ham is heating through and nicely glazed, remove it to a platter, brush once more with the glaze, and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into 1/2" slices and serve immediately.
