I would recommend reducing power, adding drag (flaps and/or slip) and increasing rate of descent until a normal approach angle was intercepted. At that point, it becomes a 'normal approach' profile.
I'm just a little confused.
I see a steeper approach as one with a greater angle.
For instance, a PAPI is normally 3°. But the one we just had approved at Copperhill utilizes 4° for the RWY20 approach. That's clearly a larger approach angle to provide a steeper approach due to terrain.
Unless I'm totally misreading you.
