Ham Steak with Peach-Mustard Glaze

Ham steaks....I've never heard of ham steaks and had no idea where to find them at wal-mart, but my friend, Suzanne, knew exactly where they were. In the middle refrigerated section between the cheese and cereal. Huh, I had no idea I was walking by them for so many years. I've really been missing out! These were awesome!

(serves 4...we doubled it and had some leftovers)
3 tablespoons peach preserves
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard

1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil (I used vegetable oil)
A good pinch of ground dried ginger
1 ham steak (1-1 1/2 pounds)
Preheat barbecue to medium-high. In a small bowl, combine preserves, mustard powder, oil, and ginger; stir to blend. Pat ham steak dry with paper towels. Make small cuts at 1" intervals around the edges of ham; this prevents curling during cooking.
Place ham on the BBQ; cook for about 4 minutes- don't close the grill. Turn ham and brush on half of the preserve mixture. Cook for about 4 minutes. Turn ham and brush with remaining preserve mixture. Cook for about 3 minutes, then turn and cook for about 3 more minutes, or until ham is heated through and nicely glazed.
We grilled some fresh zucchini from our garden to go with our meal. We just sprayed them down with vegetable oil and seasoned with lemon pepper. They stayed on the grill the whole time the ham was cooking. They were so yummy!
