I had a bunch (and I do mean a bunch!) of ham leftover from cooking a big ham on my Char-Broil Big Easy. I could’ve made more sandwiches. Or I could dice up some ham for omlets. Instead, I decided to warm up some nice thick slices and top them with this wonderful pepper onion beer sauce. It looks like your pretty standard vegetable topping, but with a twist: orange marmalade. Whoa! I wasn’t expecting that!
This pepper onion beer sauce really goes well with ham, but I also think it’d compliment grilled chicken just as well. Don’t like orange marmalade? I bet you could substitute your favorite marmalade or preserves.
Pepper Onion Beer Sauce
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1/2 green bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 red bell bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 sweet onion chopped
- 8 ounces beer
- 1/2 cup orange marmalade
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Hot sauce to taste
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat
- Add the bell peppers and onion and saute for 5 minutes
- Add the beer, orange marmalade, soy sauce and hot sauce. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and continue simmering until the vegetables are softened and the sauce is reduced.
- Serve over sliced ham or grilled chicken.
