A dash of curry and a maple syrup glaze transform pineapple into an elegant topping for ham. Steam asparagus or green beans for a quick side.
Prep: 1 minute; Cook: 12 minutes
1 (1-pound) slice 25%-less-sodium ham (about 1/2 inch thick), cut into 4 pieces
2 cups refrigerated prechopped fresh pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
How to Make It
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ham; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan; keep warm.
Combine pineapple, syrup, and curry powder; toss well.
Melt butter in pan over medium heat; add pineapple mixture. Cook 4 minutes or until pineapple is tender, stirring frequently. Add brown sugar; cook 1 minute or until sugar melts. Serve glazed pineapple over ham.

This was delicious! The taste of the pineapple over top of the ham was fantastic. Next time, I am trying it with a honey ham to add a bit more flavor to it. It was also suggested to add cherries to the mix to bring out the flavor of a regular ham steak (if you like cherries). It was so easy to prepare.
This is one of my favorite recipes! So delicious, super easy. I always make some scalloped or au gratin potatoes to go with it and green beans. I have not changed the recipe as written except I generally use canned pineapple instead of fresh.
This is an excellent recipe. It's super easy, has tons of flavor, and is one of my regulars for everyday and special occasions. My Mom and I both made it for company and it was a winner with them as well. I use canned chunk pineapple with the juice to make it a little saucier (and cheaper!).
