Are you craving a delicious and satisfying meal? Look no further than this irresistible recipe for Gammon Steak and Chips. This classic dish combines tender gammon steak with crispy chips for a taste sensation that will leave you wanting more.
How to Prepare
To start, preheat your oven to a perfect temperature of 220°C/210°C Fan/Gas Mark 8. This will ensure that your gammon steak and chips turn out perfectly.
Step 1: Crispy Chips
Spread a layer of chips on a baking tray or skillet pan and pop them into the preheated oven for 10 minutes. This will give them a nice golden color and a satisfying crunch.
Step 2: Tomato Delight
While the chips are cooking, prepare the tomatoes. Take a bowl and add in the tomatoes. Drizzle them with a touch of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Remember, the gammon already has a salty flavor, so don’t go overboard with the salt.
Step 3: Mustard Mayo Magic
Next, let’s create a delicious mustard mayo to accompany the dish. Mix the three ingredients together until well combined. Give it a taste and adjust the seasoning according to your preference. If you like it spicy, add more English mustard. For a different texture, try adding some whole grain mustard. And if you prefer a sharper taste, a hint of Dijon mustard will do the trick.
Step 4: Cooking the Gammon Steak
Now it’s time to cook the star of the show – the gammon steak. Start by lightly coating the steak in olive oil. Then, grind some black pepper onto a plate until it forms a fine layer. Roll the gammon steak on the plate, ensuring that the edges are coated in pepper. If you prefer a milder kick, simply sprinkle some black pepper over the steak or skip it altogether.
Step 5: Final Touches
Once the chips have had their 10 minutes in the oven, flip them over to ensure even cooking. Add the tomatoes and gammon steak to the baking tray, placing the gammon in between the chips and tomatoes to act as a barrier. This will prevent any unwanted sogginess. While everything is cooking, crack an egg into a ramekin and set it aside. This will make it easier to pour the egg onto the hot baking tray without any mishaps.
Step 6: The Finishing Touch
After 8 minutes, remove the tray from the oven. Flip the gammon steak and quickly pour the egg into one of the corners. Set a timer for 4-6 minutes, depending on your preference for the yolk’s runniness. This step adds a delightful touch to your gammon steak and chips.
Step 7: Serve and Enjoy
Now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Serve the gammon steak and chips on a plate or tray. Accompany it with a dollop of mustard mayo or ketchup for that extra burst of flavor. You can also add any sides you like to complement this fantastic dish.
