Tempt My Tummy… Pineapple Ham Slices and Lemon Brownies

by Lisa on February 4, 2013

I cooked a simple and very tasty meal recently and wanted to share it.  When the 5 year old kept asking for more helpings, I knew I had a winner meal.   The only bad news…. I did not grab a picture of the ham before I served dinner.  I know! What was I thinking?  Anyway, picture or not, I wanted to share this super easy and yummy ham steak recipe.

Pineapple Ham Slices

  • 2 dinner ham steaks
  • 2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar (I used light brown sugar.)
  • 1 can Chunk or Sliced Pineapple in juice, set aside 1/8 to 1/4 cup juice  (I used 1/4 cup.)

Place juice in skillet.  Stir in brown sugar.  If after the sugar is dissolved, and the “sauce” is too thin, add more brown sugar.  When dissolved, place ham on top; turn once.  Brown both sides till heated through.  After ham is heated, remove ham from skillet and set aside on a plate. Cover with foil.  Now, add the pineapple to skillet and let it cook in the juice until heated.  To serve, pour the pineapple pieces and juice over ham.

This ham is moist and delicious!

Also, I have to share a link to the yummiest lemon bars I made for a Super Bowl party, yesterday.  If you love lemon –and I mean VERY zesty lemon flavoring– then you will LOVE this recipe.  Check out BeckyCharms.com for a these Lemony Lemon Brownies recipe.  I DID grab a few pictures while baking this lemony treat!

 Lemon Brownies
“Brownie” Batter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Tart Lemon Glaze
  • 1 rounded cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 8 teaspoons lemon zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease/Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter/cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Zest and juice 3-4 large lemons; set aside.
  3. In the mixing bowl beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined. Pour into the flour mixture and beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Pour into baking dish and bake for 23-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden around the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing.  Do not overbake, or the bars will be dry.
  6. When brownies are cooled completely, make the glaze…sift the powdered sugar, add lemon zest and juice, and whisk together all three ingredients.  Pour the glaze over the brownies.   This glaze does not completely harden.  Cut into bars and serve.

Lisa, I used to make ham similar to this a long time ago, and now wondering why I ever stopped LOL. Add a baked sweet potato along side and whala! A ready-made meal 🙂 Thanks for sharing, and thanks for hosting! I’m sharing a ‘childhood’ favorite this week 🙂

Never heard of lemon brownies, but I do love lemon cake, muffins, bars, etc. These look so moist and delicate. I could eat one or two now.
