the Ingredients

Southwest Grilled Ham Steaks


  • 1 tablespoon pure ground ancho chile
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 center-cut smoked ham steak, 2½ to 3 pounds and 1 to 2 inches thick
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


  • 01 Prepare the grill to cook your ham steak for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).
  • 02 here's how to prepare ham steaks. In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients. Brush both sides of the ham steak with the melted butter and season evenly with the rub, pressing the spices into the meat.
  • 03 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the ham steak over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the surface is nicely browned, 12 to 15 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and serve your perfectly grilled ham steaks warm or at room temperature.
