Ham with Raisin Sauce
Serve with a green vegetable and your favorite sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes can be baked–or quick cooked in the microwave oven for an easy but festive dinner.
Grated rind of 1 orange
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup red currant jelly
1 tablespoon Gravy Master
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 lb. center-cut ham steak, fully cooked
In a bowl, combine orange rind, orange juice, currant jelly, Gravy Master and allspice. Cook on HIGH 2 or 3 minutes, until it starts to boil.
Dissolve cornstarch in water and stir into hot mixture. Cook on HIGH 1 minute, stirring once. Stir in raisins. Set aside.
Cut slashes around edge of ham steak so it won’t curl up while cooking. Place in a shallow baking dish and cover loosely with waxed paper. Cook on HIGH about 5 minutes, until heated through.
Drain fat from serving dish and remove from platter. Spoon on sauce. Microwave on HIGH 2 to 3 minutes, until heated. Makes 4 servings.
