Monday's value meal...

Recently the mail man brought me my most recent copy of Food and Wine magazine which featured updated American classics.  Now normally I don't like to mess with a good thing but when I saw the recipe for ham steak with red eye gravy it reminded me of going to Georgia to visit my some of my in-laws.  The south has some mad cooking skills and we loved the food so I wanted to share an easy southern idea today.

Ham Steak with Redeye Gravy

1 thick-cut ham steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup Peppadew peppers, coarsely chopped
2 pickled jalapeños, stemmed and sliced
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons brewed coffee
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of water
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the ham and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly browned, 10 minutes. Transfer the ham to a plate, cover and keep warm.

Melt the butter in the skillet. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the Peppadews and jalapeños and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the broth and coffee and cook until reduced by half, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom of the skillet, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry and cook until the gravy is thickened, about 1 minute. Season with salt and black pepper. Slice the ham steak into four pieces, pour the gravy on top and serve.

  1. That sounds yummy! Roy usually just wings it with Redeye gravy. So this will be nice to have a real recipe. Thank you!


I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
