I read somewhere recently that the phrase “a quick supper” was a cliché. What? Why? Surely it’s a descriptor. Most of us eat supper or dinner or tea, call it what you will. And there are times in a busy working week when we want to produce something tasty in a short amount of time.
So cliché or not, this is a quick supper dish. Quick to prepare, quick to cook and I can tell you we ate it pdq. We had it with sweetcorn and an apple coleslaw. That didn’t take long either. *blows loud raspberry*
Glazed Gammon Steaks
2 gammon steaks
3 level tspn Dijon mustard
1 tbsp runny honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Good grind of black pepper
Put the final four ingredients into a small pan, whisk together, then cook on a medium heat for 4-5 mins until the glaze is somewhat reduced. Remove from the stove and cool for 10 minutes to thicken.
Heat the grill to high. Line the grill pan with foil to save on washing up time. Snip the gammon round the edges to stop it curling up while cooking.
Put the steaks on the grill rack and brush the glaze liberally over their top sides. Cook for 4-6 minutes, depending on thickness, then turn them over, glaze the other side and grill for a further 4-6 minutes. Job done. How quick was that?
