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.

Hands on time:   Total time: 30 minutes  Serves: 3

    3 ( 1/4-pound) ham steaks or 1 ( 3/4-pound) ham steak cut into thirds 
    1/4 cup apricot spreadable fruit 
    1/4 cup orange juice 
    1 orange, peeled and sliced 

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. Transfer to serving plate and garnish with orange slices.

They say “you are what you eat,” and I tend to agree that what you choose to eat says a lot about who you are.  At a dinner party, when everyone’s sated and could not eat another bite, I like to bring up my favorite topic: food. Always more food. When I’m trying to get to know someone new, I always like to find out what...

This article is excerpted from “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking” by Samin Nosrat (Simon & Schuster, 2017).; (ART ADV: With photos XNYT43-46.)

Forget the famous power lunch. For the time being, forget about any lunch at all in the rooms that used to house the Four Seasons. When the Grill, the first of two new restaurants in the Seagram Building space, opens to the public next week, it will serve only dinner.

Ask the Test Kitchen: Do you peel bananas before freezing?

A: If there is one cool thing about bananas, it’s that they freeze wonderfully. And they keep just fine in the freezer for about three months. Freezing is a way to preserve bananas that have reached their ripeness peak or are close to overripe. Rather than tossing them because you can’t eat them out of hand, freeze them to use in making...

Deconstruction once ruled academia. The literary theory insisted that the text (pre-texting) be taken apart, like some Lego castle, and left in pieces on the classroom floor. The game kept professor and student busy for years. Now new fads roam campus, and deconstruction has moved on to the menu. The enchilada, for instance, no longer dresses for dinner...
