  1. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside, without draining the water to keep the potatoes hot.
  2. Next, make the herb 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 stock 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 stock. Repeat until the paste has a creamy consistency. Gradually stir in the remaining stock and 100ml water and turn up the heat. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Stir in the mixed herbs and season with salt and pepper.
  3. While the sauce simmers, preheat the grill and cook the gammon steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Keep an eye on the sauce, stirring regularly.
  4. Meanwhile, toss the apple wedges with the lemon juice. Melt 2 tbsp margarine/butter in a frying pan and fry the apple wedges over a low heat, turning regularly, for 2-3 minutes, or until golden and soft. Continue to keep an eye on the gammon and the sauce while you are cooking the apple wedges.
  5. Once the sauce, gammon and apple wedges are done, drain the potatoes and mash with the milk, mustard and 1 tbsp margarine/butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the grilled gammon steaks with the apple wedges, mustard mash and herb sauce.
