  1. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the herb sauce, melt 2 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 200ml 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. Season the gammon with salt and pepper and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through.
  4. Toss the apple wedges with the lemon juice and sugar to coat, heat 3 tbsp margarine/butter in a frying pan and fry, (turning regularly) for 2-3 minutes, or until golden and soft.
  5. Drain the potato and mash with the milk, English mustard and 2 tbsp margarine/butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the grilled gammon steaks with the fried apple, mustard mash and herb sauce.

Cook's tips

Cutting 1cm snips into the sides of the gammon steak avoids it curling too much when cooking.
