Tequila-Marinated Ham Steaks

Tequila-Marinated Ham Steaks
from Weber's Recipe of the Week

Grill overDirect/Medium heat

1/2 cup tequila
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons light brown sugar, divided
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 jalapeño chile pepper, cut into 1/8-inch slices

2 bone-in ham steaks, about 1 pound each

To make the marinade: In a small bowl, combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar, cumin, and jalapeño. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Place the ham steaks in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade and place in a baking dish, making sure the jalapeños are evenly distributed over both steaks. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, turning the steaks once. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.

Remove the steaks and the jalapeños from the marinade and reserve the marinade. Pour the marinade and a few of the jalapeño slices into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 full minute. Set aside 1/2 cup of the liquid for basting the ham. To the remaining liquid, add the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the liquid until it has reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 5 minutes.

Nick the edges of the ham steaks, making small cuts through the fat every 2 to 3 inches around the perimeter. Grill over Direct Medium heat until ham is nicely marked and crispy on the edges, about 12 minutes, turning once. Brush with some of the reserved marinade after turning.

Transfer the ham to a cutting board and cut into serving-size pieces. Drizzle the reduced marinade over the top and garnish with jalapeños. Serve warm.

Makes 4 to 6 servings
