Recipe: Apricot-glazed ham steaks


Beverly Rice's ham recipe is a welcome change from the chicken and fish recipes we frequently receive. Rice, who lives in Dalton, says, "I came up with the recipe in desperation one day -- looked through the pantry and fridge, and voila!" A glaze of apricot spread and orange juice and a topping of fresh orange slices give the meat a lot of flavor without overwhelming it. While last week we had to work to whittle the recipe down to meet the five-ingredient limit, Rice is happy with just four.

    1/4 cup orange juice

In a lightly oiled large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add ham when skillet is hot. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Add apricot spread and orange juice to skillet, stirring until spread melts. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes, turning ham frequently, until coated with glaze.
