Extra ingredients aren't necessary to make one of our ham steaks taste great, but a good sauce only adds to the flavor. This balsamic vinegar and blackberry blend is savory, a little sweet, and rich in antioxidants.
Balsamic Blackberry Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 shallot, finely minced
- 2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: 1 tsp granulated sugar
Sauté minced shallot in olive oil over medium high heat until fragrant and lightly caramelized.
Add vinegar and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and stir in blackberries, honey, thyme, lime juice, and sugar if you prefer a sweeter sauce. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until berries break down and the sauce thickens into a syrupy texture, about 10-15 min. Use a spoon to mash blackberries into the vinegar if desired.
Remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over warmed Frick’s ham steak or pork loin.
