Pineapple Ham

I needed a super quick dinner tonight.
Really quick.
So I caramelized some pineapple, added ham, badabing, badaboom, dinner!
Toss in some cubed, baked potatoes and some green beans and what dya know...full meal in under a half hour!
Pineapple always complements ham well, but when it's caramelized...mmmmm...perfection! 
Try it out =D

Pineapple Ham

1.5 tablespoons butter
2 cups pineapple
1 large ham steak
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pineapple juice (if you're using canned pineapple, just used the juice in there)
1 tablespoon mustard
Salt to taste

Melt butter in large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Sautee pineapple until it's lightly golden on the sides, about 4-5 minutes. Add orange and pineapple juice and mustard. Heat sauce and add cubed ham steak. Heat through. That's it, folks!
Unless you want to do potatoes. In that case, wash and cube potatoes. Toss in olive oil, a dash of rosemary, some oregano, salt, and pepper. Bake on 400 until tender inside. 


  1. I didn't like pineapple until Brandt's pregnancy... then I craved it!! This sounds like another good recipe to try..
