  • 1 1/2 cups Pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup Dark beer
  • 1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Toasted sesame oil

  • 3 lb Bone-in ham steak, cut 1 1/2 inches thick

  1. Combine everything except the ham steak and sesame seeds in a large ziploc and mix well. Add the ham and seal, removing as much air as possible. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Preheat a grill on high heat.
  3. Remove the ham from the marinade and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, then pat it dry with a paper towel.
  4. Place on the hot grill and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
  5. Reduce grill to low heat and continuing cooking, flipping occasionally, until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140F in the thickest area.
  6. Move ham to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  7. Cut the meat off the bone, slicing against the grain.
  8. Top with toasted sesame seeds and serve immediately.
