In a small saucepan, combine the ginger, pineapple juice, vinegar, soy and brown sugar, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low. And simmer until volume is reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Add the ketchup and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from heat, stir in the lime juice cilantro and white or black pepper and set aside.

Sprinkle the tuna generously with salt and pepper, then grill over a medium are for about 3 minutes a side, or until a peek in the interior shows some pink. (This is for medium rare; if you like it better done, keep cooking until it reaches the stage you like.) During the last minute of cooking, paint each steak with a couple of tablespoons of the glaze.

Remove tuna steaks from the grill, top each with a tablespoon or two of glaze, and serve at once. Pass remaining glaze separately.
