Honey Mustard Glazed Smoked Ham Steaks

This was just absolutely fantastic.  The ham was cooked just the way that I like it, soft and juicy throughout from the glaze and with a hint of charring (flavor maker) of the marbleizing on the edges.  The smokey flavor combined with the sweet and tangy sauce was a match made in heaven.  My only regret with this recipe is that there wasn't enough for leftovers.  They ate every last bite and I even caught my daughter, Paige, gnawing on her fork when she was done.  I asked her jokingly if she wanted to suck on the bone and she was like, "Sure".  That's my girl.

1/4 cup of apple cider
1/4 cup of honey
3 T. of Dijon mustard
2 T. of real mayonnaise
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
2 large smoked ham steaks

-Whisk together the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.  Once thoroughly combined, cover with saran wrap and place in the fridge for a few minutes while you preheat your grill to a medium-high flame.  Lightly salt and pepper both sides of the ham steaks and toss onto the top rack of your grill.  Baste with the honey mustard sauce and flip throughout the entire grilling process of about 5-6 total minutes on each side (I flipped it maybe 4 times throughout).  Towards the end of the grilling, transfer the ham steaks down to the bottom rack to really charr them up a bit and add some grill marks.  Serve with a drizzle of the remaining honey mustard sauce on top.  Serves 4.  Enjoy!
