300 Big & Bold Barbecue & Grilling Recipes
by Karen Adler & Judith Fertig
Because ham is precooked, ham steaks are so simple to prepare on the grill. Just add a bit of smoke and a tasty glaze, heat the ham through and you've got dinner. Because the steaks grill so quickly, we prefer to use charcoal for the most flavor.
TIPS: This glaze would also be delicious on any type of pork or on chicken.
It's always a good idea to oil the grill rack well before heating the grill, but it's especially important when you're grilling foods with a sweet glaze or baste, so they don't stick.
• Suggested wood: apple or pecan
• 1 cup apple cider
• 1/4 cup bourbon
• 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
• 1/4 cup butter
• ham slices (1/2 inch thick)
1. Prepare the glaze: In a small saucepan, combine cider and bourbon; boil over high heat until reduced by almost half. Add brown sugar and butter, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and keep warm.
2. Prepare a hot fire with a kiss of smoke in your charcoal grill.
3. When you see the first wisp of smoke from the wood, place ham on the grill. Close the lid and grill for about 2 minutes per side, turning once, or until ham has good grill marks and is heated through. Brush with glaze and grill, turning once, until caramelized on both sides. Serve with any remaining glaze on the side.
Add 1/4 cup of your favorite fruit preserves or jam, such as apricot or cherry, to the glaze. The pectin in the preserves helps to gel the sauce.
