|Blackberry Rum Glazed Ham for Two
Two boneless ham steaks (about 1/2-inch thick)
1 tablespoon cooking oil (olive, vegetable, canola or peanut)
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup blackberry preserves (or jam)
1/8 cup white rum
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh blackberries
To make the blackberry rum glaze, heat a small sauce pot over medium-low heat. Add the butter and when melted, add the blackberry preserves, rum and brown sugar. Stir well. Let the mixture bubble a bit and then add the fresh blackberries. Cook for 3 minutes.
Heat a frying pan over high heat until very hot. Add the oil and swirl to coat. Lay the ham steaks in the pan and sear for 2 minutes each side.
Serve the ham steaks with a drizzle of the blackberry rum sauce.
