Gammon Steak with a Light Parsley Sauce

4 servings
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking time: 12 minutes

  • Ingredients
  • 4 tsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 gammon steaks
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz) white wine vinegar (4 tbsp)
  • 120 ml (4 fl oz) water (8 tbsp)
  • freshly milled black pepper
  • 4 tsp runny/liquid honey
  • 4 tbsp fresh curly parsley, roughly chopped

To serve

  • 228 g (8 oz) peas (1½ cups)


  • You will also need a large heavy-based frying pan/skillet.

  • Method
  • First put five plates in the oven to warm.
  • Then remove any rind from the steaks.

  • Now heat 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan over a medium heat and stir through the garlic.

  • The steaks will need to be cooked two at a time. Lay the first two steaks in the pan and cook for 3–4 minutes each side. Remove and transfer to a warmed plate in the oven.
  • Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan and cook the remaining two steaks, transferring them to the warmed plate with the other steaks.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, water, pepper, and honey in a small bowl or jug.
  • Once the steaks are cooked, remove the pan from the heat and add the sauce along with most of the parsley.
  • Stir vigorouslyfor 1 minute. The heat of the pan will be enough to heat through the sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with the remaining parsley.

  • Serve with peas and other seasonal vegetables.
