I tried this and it came out very good. I cut the brown sugar back by half and only used enough butter to create a thin sheen on the pan. very quick and good. I served with roasted okra,tomatos and onions.

Simple and delicious! I melted the butter in a sauce pan and added brown sugar. I grilled the steak and basted it with the brown sugar butter mixture. My husband said make this again. A keeper for sure! Served it with bacon swiss scalloped potatoes.

I had a 1.25 lbs of some cheap hickory smoked ham steak and a family to feed. I found this and it looked good. To flush out the the recipe, since I had more than double of the amount of ham the recipe asked for, I added 1 tbs of honey, 1/4 cup of pineapple juice, and a dash of ground cloves to imitate those flavors I remembered getting as a kid eating ham at a church dinner. It turned out perfect and my family asked me to add this to my repertoire.

Did it with a full 1/2" thick ham steak, but added a little some sliced pineapples and about 2 Tbsp of juice to the butter and 1 Tbsp of Dijon mustard to the brown sugar mix. Turned out great!
