I participated in the What’s Cooking recipe exchange for October/November, and was super excited when I received this recipe!
I don’t know what nestie it’s from, so I’ll give you credit if you let me know!
1 1/2 tbs. butter
1 (2 lb) ham steak (we used 1 lb. since it’s just the two of us)
1 red apple, cored and thinly sliced
1 green apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup maple flavored pancake syrup (we used light syrup)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the ham on both sides in the butter until browned.
I cut up the ham, as shown, to make it fit in the skillet!Lay the sliced apple over the ham. (A neat trick for slicing apples is put them in a bowl with orange juice to prevent browning until ready to use for your recipe. You won’t get orange flavor, I promise!) Pour the syrup over the apples. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally until the apples are cooked through.
2. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve immediately.
This recipe couldn’t have been easy enough! We were skeptical at first though, because we didn’t want an apple pie ham LOL! However, the taste was subtle and sweet. My fiance mentioned how yummy the apples were especially in the recipe.
I ended up making garlic bread with a whole wheat loaf of french bread, brushed on butter, Penzey’s Northwoods seasonings, Brady Street Cheese Sprinkle, granulated garlic and a little bit of parsley! Really tasty!
I also made my fiance’s favorite dish, GBC! (Green Bean Casserole). Our favorite recipe is right here!
All in all, this was a great dinner for a Friday night!!
