Ingredients

  • 1½ cups apple cider

  • 2 Tbsp. butter

Directions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the cider, vinegar, and mustard.
  • Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over high heat and sauté the ham until it is golden and heated through, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer the ham to a platter and keep warm.
