Vince Lombardi's Broiled Deviled Ham Steaks

Vince Lombardi was ... Lombardi was one of the athletes featured in The All-Star Athletes Cook Book from 1965. His recipe is reproduced here as an example of what may have been considered a meal fit for an athlete over 50 years ago. The book contains recipes presented by most of the famous, and many not so famous, athletes of the 1960s from all sports - baseball to car racing, football to golf, and everything in between.



  1. Put the dry mustard in a mixing bowl. Blend in the orange juice and enough karo syrup to make a medium thin paste.
  2. Spread paste on both sides of ham steak.
  3. Place under broiler, on rack, for 15 minutes on each side. Serve with potatoes or yams, baked and buttered.

(the proportions of orange juice and syrup are a matter of taste and can be adjusted to the individual palate.)

Serves 4 to 6.
