Recipe by Barbara In Florida
I adapted this recipe from one I got off Weber.com. The combination of the ingredients produces a very unique taste and the Ham Steaks turn out moist and flavorful. I did adjust the cumin back to 1 1/2 tsp. and increased the jalapenos to four just as personal prefrence. It's a must try if you are tired of the usual Ham Steak with Pineapple rings. I served this with baked sweet potatoes and fresh green beans. The left overs if any are great the next day. The cook time includes marinating time.
- 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 jalapeno pepper, cut into 1/8 inch slices
- 2 bone-in ham steaks, about 1 lb each
