Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 large Pineapple; - whole, fresh
16 ounces Ham steak; - about 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons Brown sugar; - dark brown is best
1 teaspoon Ginger; - fresh, finely diced
2 ounces Rum or brandy; - optional

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

Split the pineapple lengthwise cutting through the fronds on top so each half has a 'handle'. Using a serrated knife (a grapefruit knife is perfect if you have one) cut along the edges of each half to remove the center section, forming a boat or trough.

From the removed sections, cut out the tough center cores then slice the rest into about 1/2 inch slices. Set aside for now.

On a separate cutting board, lay out the ham steak and cut large pieces sections that roughly match the pineapple slices.

Grill these pieces for about 2 minutes to get marks on them then turn them over.

Add the pineapple slices on the grill and cook them for about 1 minute per side.

Preheat you oven to 375F

Now start layering the slices of ham and pinapple back into the pineapple shell. You may wind up with extra pieces but that's OK at this point. Save them to fill in holes and crevices after you season the dish.

Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar and ginger over the ham and pineapple slices and work it down into the spaces between slices a bit. Now cut the remaining slices of ham and pineapple into medium chunks and fit them in or around the rest of the shell. You should have some grill marks showing on both ham and pineapple.

Wrap a piece of aluminum foil around each of the green fronds to keep them from browning in the oven.

Bake for about 20 minutes until heated through and lightly browned on top.

To serve: Warm the liquor in a pan then ignite and pour it over each pineapple half as you bring it to the table.

Each half serves two diners as a light entree (with a salad and side) or one diner as a full meal.

I came up with this when I had a fresh pineapple and left over ham slice to use up from the refrigerator. It was a hit!

This was interesting. We didn't serve it in the pineapple shell but instead just a baking dish. Served it over rice with some hot chili oil...great combination of flavors but I wasn't crazy about it as leftovers.

I'm drooling again. Last night for dinner I did grilled pork chops with pineapple slices that I glazed in brown sugar, butter, lime zest, and allspice. The combination was incredible! Your hamapple must be awesome given that same profile.
