This was a really nice ham steak that I served for Easter for 2 of us. I hesitated to make this as I'm not a big fan of balsamic vinegar, but must admit that the sauce was really good. Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

My husband and I are hoping to have a quiet Christmas Eve at home and I've been looking for a festive dinner idea that's not too much for two. This will be perfect and just right before all the eating that takes place on Christmas Day. Thanks so much!
