Gammon with Mustard Dill Sauce

I am a massive ham fan, be that gammon, pancetta, bacon or any other variety. Back in February 1996, this little gem crossed my path in the Sainsbury's Magazine. I have made this time and time again, in fact just last night, and it is incredibly easy - yet another perfect mid-week meal. Serve this up with boiled baby new potatoes and salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 gammon steaks with rind removed (225g each)
  • 40g butter
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 x 142ml tub soured cream (or crème fraiche)
  • 2 tspns mustard (whatever you prefer)
  • 2 tspns fresh dill
  • salt & freshly milled pepper

Method

  • Melt 10g of the butter in a large frying pan and sauté the onion for 4-5 minutes over a medium heat until brown at the edges. Remove the onions from the pan.
  • Raise the heat and add the remaining butter to the pan. Add the gammon steaks and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning them over half way through.
  • Whilst the steaks are cooking, mix the cream or crème fraiche with the mustard and dill in a small bowl and season.
  • Return the onions to the frying pan and pour the sauce over the gammon. Allow the sauce to bubble and reduce slightly. Serve immediately with the sauce poured over the gammon steaks.

  • If you are in need of being spoilt you can oven roast the potatoes. I often parboil the baby new potatoes for 10 minutes, halve them and roast them in a little oil for 25-30 minutes.
  • Alternatively you could make a creamy mash to go with this and serve with steamed carrots and green beans.
