Recipe: Sticky Five Spice Gammon

It’s been a long time since I did any cooking, but since I finished work an hour early on Friday, I thought I might as well try out one of my food pins from Pinterest.

The original recipe that I found on Pinterest had egg noodles, but we had none in the house so I used rice instead. I forgot to take pictures though, so the picture is from the original website. The recipe also stated that the sauce should turn into a glaze. I think I used a larger orange than the original recipe so I had a lot more liquid. If this happens to you, mix some cornstarch with hot water and add to the pan at the end of step 4. Cook for 5 more minutes or until the sauce thickens.

  • 4 Medium gammon steaks (cut into bite sized pieces)
