Ham with Redeye Gravy Recipe
  • Trim any fat from the ham steaks and sauté in clarified butter until the edges of the ham turn golden and the butter starts to brown.
  • Remove ham from pan and keep warm.
  • In the same pan, pour in water, coffee and cream or milk.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook until the gravy thickens. Note that this gravy does not get as thick as a regular gravy. If you want a thicker consistency, stir in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and another 1/4 cup of milk. Keep stirring as it thickens.
