Ingredients

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

Method

  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.

  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.

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

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