Honey-Glazed Ham on Balsamic Bitter Greens
Prepared for Texas Farmers' Markets, Market Chef Maggie Perkins

In a heavy skillet over medium high heat, add just enough cooking oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan, tilting pan to cover. Remove excess. Just as oil begins to shimmer, add ham steak. Heat until seared with edges slightly browned, then turn to sear opposite side. Drizzle honey over top of ham steak to coat thinly, reduce heat to medium, and allow honey to ‘melt’ over steak to coat. Turn, cook 1 minute, then turn again, to coat. Remove from heat and set aside.

To skillet over medium heat, add balsamic vinegar, scraping any remaining bits from ham into the vinegar, honey, and ham drippings. Add greens and dill, stirring until coated and slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Cover, and allow to cook until greens are fully wilted, stirring occasionally, approximately 3 minutes. Add salt and cracked red pepper, if using, to taste. Top greens with ham steak and cover, heating all together on low for 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve.


  1. You had me at 10 Minute Meals; but we tried the honey baked ham and dandelion greens, and it was great! Delightful combo of sweet, sour and spicy. More, please!
