kikkoman products used:


1 10-pound cured smoked bone-in ham or 6-pound cured boneless ham​
½ medium pineapple, peeled, sliced into rings​
1 red onion, thinly sliced​
1 cup Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar​
1 cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Takumi, Original ​
Maraschino cherries, for serving (optional)​
Slider buns or rolls, for serving


  1. Arrange a rack in center of oven and preheat to 300ºF.​
  2. Wrap ham in 2-3 large sheets of foil and transfer to a roasting pan or a wire rack set inside a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake ham until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 115ºF, 3-3½ hours for boneless, 3½-4 hours for bone-in.​
  3. Meanwhile, line a second large rimmed baking sheet with a layer of foil. Arrange pineapple rings on baking sheet in a single layer and set aside.​
  4. Combine red onion and rice vinegar in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Let sit for at least 1 hour.​
  5. Remove ham from oven and increase oven temperature to 425ºF. Unwrap ham, using the foil to line a baking sheet for easy cleanup. Transfer ham to baking sheet. Use a pastry brush to baste ham with Teriyaki Takumi and return to oven for another 15-20 minutes, brushing with more glaze every 5 minutes, until glaze is deeply browned and thermometer registers 125ºF. Carefully transfer ham to a cutting board and let rest while you roast the pineapple.​
  6. Transfer pineapple to oven and roast until tender and starting to lightly brown, 20-25 minutes. Remove pineapple from oven and preheat broiler (do not move oven rack too close to broiler to prevent pineapple from burning). Brush pineapple with a thin layer of Takumi and broil until lightly caramelized, about 2 minutes, watching closely.​
  7. Arrange pineapple and ham on a serving platter and garnish with maraschino cherries if using. Serve with drained pickled onions and buns for building sandwiches.

Recipe and food styling by Christina Chaey.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
