NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus wedges for serving
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 6 -ounce ham steaks
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
Directions
  • Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, chives and mustard in a bowl.

  • Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the rice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper; reduce the heat to low and simmer until almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add the asparagus and simmer until the rice and asparagus are tender, about 3 more minutes. Drain in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse under cold water, stirring gently to remove excess water. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the lemon juice and half of the prepared chive sauce; season with salt and pepper.

  • Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ham steaks, overlapping as necessary, and cook, flipping occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the ham and cook, flipping often, until the sugar melts. Season with pepper. Serve with the rice salad, the remaining chive sauce and lemon wedges.
