I received a letter from Fried Ham Steak with Cider Ginger Glaze the other day. I know! I was surprised, too, and thought I should share it with you.
Well, now. I perceived a certain threat contained in that letter and knew I better get busy. I didn’t know what that ham steak might do.
I followed the recipe precisely, and Fried Ham Steak with Cider Ginger Glaze turned out really great. Mr. Fried Ham Steak and Miss Cider Ginger Glaze work well together. He is the subtle main man and she is the leading lady.
Now, I don’t appreciate being threatened, so I have blocked that pushy pink slab from reading my blog. If he had just sent me his recipe with a sweet note, I would have gladly featured him without all the fuss.
What I really found out is Miss Cider Ginger Glaze is amazing and should become the celebrity of this post. She is versatile and would work just as beautifully alongside other cuts of pork, poultry and salmon. SHE is the real superstar in this duo.
