  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade

  • Arrange an oven rack so a broiler pan will be able to sit 2 to 3 inches away from the element and heat the broiler on high (or prepare a hot charcoal or gas grill fire).
  • Pat the ham steak dry with paper towels and set on the broiler pan (or on a plate for transferring to the grill). In a small saucepan, combine the marmalade, vinegar, rosemary, mustard, soy sauce, and chile flakes. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, whisking to combine, for 2 to 3 minutes. Keep warm. Brush one side of the ham with the glaze and broil (or grill) until the glaze is bubbling and browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip, brush on the remaining glaze, and cook the other side for another 4 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

    This is actually really good, and SO simple. I often have a ham in the freezer for a quick family meal, and this sauce jazzes it up. My picky 5-year-old loved it, and so did my husband (and he is scarred from too much orange-juice-and-pork-chops as a child, so he was concerned). The sauce is a lot like the rosemary chicken thighs from #87, although it's not quite as sharp here. Advice: even if you're an eco-freak like me, put foil inside the broil pan - the sugary sauce made a BIG mess that someone is going to need to scrub tomorrow.
