|Gammon (Ham Steaks) with Whiskey Sauce
4 servings of Ham Steak, bone-in or boneless, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
2 tsp Finely chopped onion
1 tsp Brown sugar
2 tsp Whiskey
2 TBSP Flour
2 TBSP Butter
3/4 cup Water or stock
Salt or pepper to taste
Brush steaks with melted butter. Snip fat to prevent curling, and grill or saute to brown and heat through.
To make sauce, gently fry onions in remainder of butter until cooked. Remove from heat and stir in flour gradually. Add stock. Return to heat. Add sugar and bring to the boil.
Simmer gently for about 2 minutes to cook flour. If sauce seems a little thick, add more water. Add whiskey and season to taste. Place gammon steaks on a warmed serving platter and pour on sauce.
