This recipe comes from English chef Brian Turner, with whom I have had the pleasure of working on British television and at various cooking events both in the UK and in South Africa. I’ve added my own little twist to this.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 x 180g slices leg gammon (smoked ham)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon hot english mustard
1 tablespoon white wine
4 tinned pineapple rings

Crumb

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 onion, grated
170g japanese panko breadcrumbs or dried breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons chopped sage
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 garlic clove, crushed
55g salted butter, softened
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. To make the crumb, mix the onion, breadcrumbs, sage, parsley, garlic and butter in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Using a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, make a few snips at the edges of the steaks through the skin and into the fat layer. Heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan and sear the gammon for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove from the heat.
  4. Mix the mustard and wine in a small bowl to form a paste and brush this liberally over the gammon steaks. Place the pineapple rings on top, followed by the crumb mixture, then pat down to form a crust around the steaks. Transfer to a roasting tin and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, until the crust is golden.
