- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- Cut slashes in the fat edge of the ham and place in a shallow dish.
- Combine ginger ale, orange juice, brown sugar, oil, vinegar, mustard, ginger, and cloves and mix thoroughly.
- Pour marinade over ham. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Grill over hot coals for 10-15 minutes on each side, brushing frequently with marinade.
This is an old, old recipe from the July 1967 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. It's a great way to grill a ham slice.
I used Diet Sprite instead of ginger ale because I had it on hand. I also added a little fresh ground ginger which is more like a paste. I put all the marinade ingredients into a gallon ziplock baggie. The marinade smelled out of this world. I had a very large ham steak so I cut it into four pieces and let it marinate overnight. I grilled it on my Cuisinart grill. Fast, simple and delicious. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
Made this for dinner and it was great! The ham only took a few minutes on each side since they were thin so made making diner quick. This is a nice change from baked ham with brown sugar and pineapple which is how we usually have it. Will be making again during grilling season!! Made for 1-2-3-Hits May 2010.
