Ingredients

  • 1 bone-in fully cooked spiral-sliced ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • 3 cups root beer
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions

  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 30 minutes.
  3. Brush ham with some of the glaze; bake 30-60 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, brushing occasionally with remaining glaze.
