The gammon steak is a stalwart on pub menus throughout the land, often served with egg, pineapple and chips. Although there’s nothing strictly wrong with gammon and pineapple (the sweetness of the fruit actually balances the salty, fatty flavour of the meat wonderfully) there are so many more ways to enjoy this tasty cut, so why not branch out a little next time you cook it.
As gammon is brined before it is cooked, it is not necessary to add salt when cooking. There are two main methods for cooking gammon steaks:
Heat a little oil in a pan over a medium heat and fry for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Rub the gammon steaks with oil and grill for 3–4 minutes on each side.
