Ham Steak with Rhubarb Sauce
A casual spring supper where ginger and rhubarb create a tasty sauce for ham steak.
Why This Recipe Works
This recipe for ham steak with rhubarb sauce is perfect for a quick supper. The ham steak does not need to cook for very long, and the sauce adds a complex flavor. To temper bitterness in the rhubarb sauce, we tossed the rhubarb with salt and let it macerate to draw out excessive moisture. A little fresh ginger and a splash of cider vinegar accented the rhubarb's bright flavor. The vinegar also helped keep the sauce vibrantly pink, while sugar toned down the sharpness. Better still, the rhubarb sauce was cooked in the same pan as the steak.
