This Chinese Barbecue Gammon & Pineapple dish is a delightful combination of sweet, salty, and spice! It's quick and easy to make once the gammon has been left to soak, so why not give it a try!


2 x 1.5cm thick slice of smoked gammon chops or steaks (approx. 200g each)
2 Tbsp groundnut oil
2 x 2cm thick rounds of fresh pineapple, peeled and cored.

Sauce Mix

80ml rice vinegar
3 Tbsp ketchup
300ml pineapple juice
½ tsp Chinese five spice
1 tsp butter

To Serve

Chips or 190g Brown sushi rice or plain rice


1 First, soak the gammon in cold water for 2 hours, to help remove some of the saltiness.
2 Put all the sauce ingredients except the butter into a small saucepan, and place over a moderate heat for about 5 minutes, whisking until combined. Take off the heat and whisk in the butter until it has emulsified into the sauce. Set aside.
3 In a frying pan, heat half the oil over a high heat. Once the pan is smoking hot, add the gammon chops and fry for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
4 Wash the pan, return to the heat, and add remaining oil before adding the pineapple. Fry on each side for a couple of minutes.
5 Place one round of pineapple on top of each gammon steak. Pour over the glaze, serve immediately the traditional British way, with chips! Or alternatively with sushi rice or plain rice.
