Gammon (Ham) Steaks with Whiskey Sauce


  • 4 ham steaks
  • 2 ounces butter, melted (divided)
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon whiskey
  • 1 ounce flour
  • 3/4 cup water or stock
  • Salt and/or pepper to taste


  1. Brush steaks with 1 ounce melted butter. Snip fat to prevent curling, and grill for 7-8 minutes each side.
  2. To make sauce, gently fry onions in remainder of butter until cooked.
  3. 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.
  4. Add whiskey and season to taste.
  5. Place gammon steaks on a warmed serving platter and pour on sauce.
