“A ham steak may be one of the most underutilized and underappreciated options for the grill — or dinner, for that matter,” writes Donald Link in Down South.
Grilled Ham Steak with Charred Blood Oranges
Slightly adapted from Donald Link‘s Down South: Bourbon, Pork, Gulf Shrimp & Second Helpings of Everything, published by Clarkson Potter.
Heat your grill to medium. Evenly coat the ham steak with the oil and seasoning rub. Sear the steak until it’s well charred, about 5 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, put the sugar on a small plate, slice the orange in half, and dip each half, cut-side down, into the sugar to coat. Grill the orange halves alongside the ham, cut-side down, until they char and begin to caramelize, 5 to 10 minutes.
Transfer the ham steak to a platter and rub it with the charred orange halves while squeezing out the juice from each half.
Yield: 1 or 2 servings.
