Baked Ham Steaks with Shredded Sweet Potatoes
1 1/2 lbs. Ham Steak, thick cut
1 cup Pineapple or Orange Juice
2 Sweet Potatoes
3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
1/2 cups Raisins
In a food processor shred sweet potatoes; set aside.
Place ham steaks in a large baking dish coated with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. (Alternative speed option: Cut steaks into chunks and pan fry.)
Prepare Pineapple Glaze: Combine cup of juice (pineapple or orange) with one Tbsp. brown sugar, if desired. Stir and pour over ham in baking dish or over ham chunks in skillet. Bake about 15 – 20 minutes, or sauté until lightly browned.
Melt margarine in another large nonstick skillet. Add sweet potatoes and cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add raisins and maple syrup; continue cooking until potatoes are tender.
Serve ham steaks or chunks alongside the sweet potato side dish to make a hearty-but-light meat and potatoes meal.
