  1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the gammon steak on a baking tray and grill for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked and golden.
  2. While the gammon is under the grill, cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. To make the cheese sauce, melt 1 tbsp margarine/butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 minute. Turn down the heat and add only as much milk as the mixture can absorb to make a slightly smoother paste. Work the paste into a smooth and glossy consistency before adding a little more milk. Repeat until the paste has a creamy consistency. Gradually stir in the remaining milk and turn up the heat. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Stir in the mustard and two thirds of the grated cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Mix the cooked broccoli into the sauce and spoon onto the gammon steak. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and grill for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden.
  5. Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.

Cook's tips

Cut 1cm snips into the sides of the gammon steak to stop it curling too much when cooking.
