Orange Glazed Ham Steak

I'm trying to find more recipes that are not chicken, although I could personally eat chicken everyday (others in the house begin to complain if I don't mix it up a bit).  This one from the one and only Paula Deen was a good change and definitely budget friendly!  I halved this recipe and only bought one ham steak (which was only $3.  Can't beat that!

1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons boiling water
1/4 cup orange juice
2 oranges, zest finely grated and juiced
2 (1-pound, 1/2-inch thick) ham steaks
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and boiling water until the granules dissolve. Whisk in the orange zest and juice.

Put the ham steaks in a large baking dish. Pour half of the glaze over the meat, turning once to coat them evenly. Bake for 1 hour, flipping the steaks occasionally and basting them with the remaining glaze. The glaze will thicken and the finished ham will be golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and transfer the steaks to a serving platter. Serve hot.
