A nice way to cook gammon steak

Ingredients

85g bulgur wheat
85g fresh or frozen peas or petits pois (200g/8oz in the pod)
A large leek, thinly sliced
1 orange, halved
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
A tbsp runny honey
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 lean gammon steaks
1 tbsp mint sauce

Method

STEP 1
Preheat the grill to high. Tip the bulgur and 450ml/16fl oz cold water into a large saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 8 minutes. Toss in the peas and leek and bubble for 3-5 minutes more, until soft.

STEP 2
Meanwhile, while the bulgur bubbles, make the glaze and cook the gammon. Squeeze the juice of one orange half into a pan, stir in the Worcestershire sauce, honey and mustard and simmer for 2 minutes until sticky. Season the steaks with pepper only, put them on the rack and grill for 5-6 minutes each side, brushing frequently with the glaze.

STEP 3
When the bulgur is done, drain, season well with salt and pepper and fork in the mint sauce.

STEP 4
Cut each steak in half and serve on the bulgur, with the remaining orange half cut into segments.
