Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Tip the bulgur and 450ml/16fl oz cold water into a large saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 8 minutes. Toss in the peas and leek and bubble for 3-5 minutes more, until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, while the bulgur bubbles, make the glaze and cook the gammon. Squeeze the juice of one orange half into a pan, stir in the Worcestershire sauce, honey and mustard and simmer for 2 minutes until sticky. Season the steaks with pepper only, put them on the rack and grill for 5-6 minutes each side, brushing frequently with the glaze.
  3. When the bulgur is done, drain, season well with salt and pepper and fork in the mint sauce.
  4. Cut each steak in half and serve on the bulgur, with the remaining orange half cut into segments.

I think I failed miserably to get the glaze to the sticky point, but the bulgar wheat base was delicious.

This has turned into one of our favourite dinners, so tasty and low fat to boot.

Very nice. We do it with couscous instead of the bulgur wheat.

Wow! This is great, and so tasty. Some really tangy flavours and nice and easy too. The bulgar wheat makes a great change from the usual rice and pasta, too.
