Glazed Gammon Steaks

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

A quick picture


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?

    • Thanks. Me neither but I happened to be trawling Lidl (as you do) and they caught my eye. These were smoked gammon steaks. As a combo it would be particularly good with a lime and chilli butter on the sweetcorn. The coleslaw is one R’s family do every Christmas, it’s very fresh and crisp.

  1. I always associate gammon with Suffolk. Looks lovely.
    I’m surprised how cheap pork is compared to other meat. I rarely eat it, not sure why, apart from Delia’s classic baked pork chops with crème fraiche and mushrooms which I’ve had on our dinner rotation for decades!

  2. As has been mentioned, I also don’t buy these steaks very often but, when I do, I always tell myself to buy them again. I never do, however, until they happen to catch my eye at the meat counter. I also never did much other than heat them. Next time, though, I’ll be serving mine with your glaze. It will be soon, too. I’ve just added the steaks to my grocery list. Ha!
    Thanks, Linda.
