👩🍳 Making It Step By Step
Very minimal preparation is required to cook gammon steak in an air fryer. I don’t typically preheat the air fryer before adding any food, but for some recipes, I do, for example, where I want to ‘sear’ the outside of the gammon steak.
Step 1: Preheat the air fryer to 180°C. I like to oil each gammon steak before adding it to the air fryer, but this is optional. If you are going to be adding the honey and mustard, mix this in with the oil now and brush on both sides of the gammon steak.
Step 2: Lay the gammon steaks in the air fryer basket. It’s better if they are not overlapping, but where this is unavoidable (due to the size of the gammon and/or the air fryer), just turn them more often during the air fry time so that all parts get cooked.
Step 3: If you are adding pineapple, lay it on top of the gammon, or if there is space, to the side in the basket. Air fry for 4 minutes before flipping the gammon over.
Step 4: Air fry for a further 3 to 4 minutes or until the gammon has crisped up around the edges and is piping hot all the way through.
If you want to add a fried egg on top, you can make that during this step, either by frying it in a pan on the stove or adding it to a ramekin dish/suitable baking tin and air frying for the last 4 minutes of the gammon cooking.
