1. With a sharp knife, slash the fat of the ham steak, in a diamond pattern. Do not score the meat itself, just the fat and any skin.
2. Combine the brown sugar, mustard, and ginger, adding a spoon or two of the alcohol to make a paste.

3. In a chafing dish or under the broiler, warm the ham steak for 5 minutes or until browned.
4. Turn and broil the other side for another 4 to 5 minutes.
5. Cover the ham steak with the mustard-sugar paste.
6. Warm the remaining Scotch in a ladle, ignite carefully and pour the flaming alcohol over the ham.
7. Allow the flames to die down then transfer to a serving plate.

8. Serve the ham with flambéed apples if you like.
