We used to roll in sugar and butter. Who stopped us? There was no Jamie Oliver then. First it was boil everything. And then it was all be worried about the processed foods. So, we were all just happy to have a dinner that was home made. Then it was totally cool to eat and McDonalds like 5 nights a week as long as you got a sliced apple as a side occasionally. Can’t blame anyone, food isn’t cheap and life is crazy. Hey, it’s dinner, right? This is something that came out of that. A meal my mom used to make that was filled with enough sugar to put hummingbirds into hyperdrive. Something we used to come running to the table excited about. I have haven’t recreated it perfectly, yet. But in the meantime, this is just enough sweet to savory that I could come back for seconds.
Grab some ham, feed some hummingbirds.
- 2 tbs butter divided
- 2 ham steaks
- 1/2 cup cola
- 1 teas Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teas brown sugar
- Heat 1 tbs butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the ham steaks and brown on both sides, 5 - 7 minutes.
- Stir the cola, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar together in a bowl and pour over the ham steaks. Simmer until slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and set the ham steaks aside. Add the remaining tablespoon butter to the cola sauce and stir until smooth. Serve the sauce over the ham steaks and other fixings as gravy.
My mom used to make something so sweet and amazing that we would really get excited as kids. This isn't it. And that's ok, because it is really good (and really, she probably just gave us Pixie sticks or something)
