Seize these final perfect-weather days and get that grill fired up one last time for amazing marinated ham steak kebabs. It's worth it; we promise. Grab your favorite whiskey, sticky-sweet maple syrup and some heated chipotle peppers for a kebab recipe that'll stick to your ribs and pull you through the long winter months.
If it's just too cold outside, these can be made on a stove-top grill pan or in something like a George Foreman plug-in grill.
2 lbs fresh ham steak, fat trimmed and cut into 2-inch cubes
½ cup whiskey
⅓ cup maple syrup
¼ cup white wine vinegar
zest + juice from 1 medium lemon
2 tbsp coarse sea salt
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 heaped tbsp grated fresh ginger
