Brushing a ham steak with sweet salsa while it grills adds a rich depth of flavor to the super quick main dish. Add a side salad and serve.
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice, undrained
1/3 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 pound reduced-fat, lower-salt ham steak
How to Make It
Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Combine pineapple, 2 tablespoons pineapple juice, green onions, and next 4 ingredients in a bowl; stir well.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place ham steak on rack, and grill, uncovered, about 4 minutes on each side, basting often with remaining pineapple juice. Serve ham steak with pineapple salsa.
Note: The American Heart Association says it's okay to have up to 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day (unless your doctor has put you on a strict low-sodium diet). If you eat three meals a day, that works out to about 800 milligrams of sodium per meal. So you can have a serving of Ham Steak with Pineapple Salsa (563 milligrams sodium) and stay within the guidelines--just be sure to watch the sodium content of other foods you eat during the day.
