I made this for dinner last night.  Truly, it couldn't be easier.  Yes, it's a spin off of the Pork Chops with Gnocchi I made last week.  This recipe's adapted from Emeril.  He served it with spaetzle, which would be fabulous.

1 ham steak

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup half and half

2 tablespoons whole grain or deli style mustard

Maple syrup


Brown the ham steak in butter, 2-3 minutes each side.  Remove to a plate.  Deglaze the pan with the half and half, scraping up the yummy bits off the bottom (those bits are called fond, for the uninitiated).  Add the mustard, pepper and a splash of maple syrple.  Serve the sauce with the ham steak and mashed potatoes.
