  1. 1 smoked ham or shoulder steak
  • 1 tablespoon pork fat or olive oil

  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar (or substitute white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar)

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Preheat cast iron pan (or other oven safe, heavy-bottomed pan) over medium heat. Heat the fat in the pan. Sear steak on one side until nicely browned, approximately 5 - 10 minutes. Flip and place pan in the oven. Cook in the oven for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Set ham steak aside and keep warm. Over medium-high heat, add sugar, vinegar, rosemary and pineapple to the pan. Reduce the glaze while stirring until thickened, 2 - 4 minutes.
  3. The ham steak can be served on a platter or cut into individual servings and plated. Either way, spoon the glaze over the top of the ham and serve.
