Fried Ham Steak smothered in a thick raisin sauce.This is simple but elegant country table food! If you never tried ham & raisins together you have been missing out on a great taste combination. This dish is quick, easy & only a few ingredients. Fry up some of this the next time you want a fast but tasty dinner!

1 TSP Dried Mustard Powder      
1 TSP Onion Powder     
1/2 TSP Cinnamon  
Dash or 2 Of Cloves                
2 TBS Cornstarch stirred into 1/3 Cup Cold Water

Fry Ham Steaks in butter until nicely browned on both sides,about 5 minutes per side over medium heat. Next add cider or apple juice and raisins along with spices. Stir and let simmer about 10 minutes. Stir in cornstarch mixed with the water and stir and cook until thick. Serve immediately . Serves 4.
I like to serve this with baked sweet potatoes with the raisin sauce spooned over the top of the potato!
