Ingredients
  • 230g Asda Extra Special Unsmoked Wiltshire Gammon Steak
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 300g sweet potatoes (peeled weight), cut into 1cm chunks
  • 300ml chicken stock made with 1 stock cube
  • 450ml whole milk
  • 200g frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Crusty bread, to serve
Method
  • Trim any excess fat off the gammon. Cut it into cubes. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large pan and fry the gammon until just cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  • Heat the rest of the oil in the pan and cook the onion until soft and golden. Add the sweet potatoes and stir for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the stock.

  • Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the milk and cook, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender.

  • Stir in the sweetcorn and gammon, bring back to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with black pepper.

  • Mix the cornflour with 2 tbsp water and stir in. Simmer for 2 minutes. Add half the parsley. Serve with bread, sprinkled with the rest of the parsley.
