Gammon Steak with a Clear Parsley Sauce
Prepares: 4 servings
 
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking time: 12 minutes

  • Ingredients
  • 4 tsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 gammon steaks
  • 60ml/2 fl oz/4 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 120ml/4 fl oz/8 tbsp water
  • ground black pepper
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 4 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped

  • To serve
  • 228g/8 oz peas

  • Equipment
  • large heavy-based frying pan/skillet


  1. Method
  2. Put plates in a very low oven to warm.

  3. Remove any rind from the steaks.

  4. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan over a medium heat, then stir in the garlic. The steaks will need to be cooked two at a time. Lay the first two steaks in the pan and cook for 3 minutes each side. Remove and transfer to a warmed plate in the oven.

  5. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan and cook the remaining two steaks. Then transfer to a warmed plate in the oven.

  6. Meanwhile whisk the vinegar with the water, pepper and honey in a small bowl. Once the steaks are cooked, remove the pan from the heat and add the sauce along with most of the parsley. Stir for 1 minute. The heat of the pan will be enough to heat through the sauce.

  7. Pour the sauce over the steaks and sprinkle over the remaining parsley. Serve with the peas and other seasonal vegetables.
