Serves 4     Hot   Bacon   Vegetables  Alcohol  Herbs  Main course  Gluten Wheat Free  Eggless



4 Gammon steaks

50g/2oz Butter

2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 small Onions, thinly sliced

8 Button Mushrooms, thinly sliced

1 tbsp Lemon Juice

2 tbsp finely chopped Fresh Parsley

4 tbsp Tomato Puree

6 tbsp Dry White Wine (check manufacture)

3 tbsp Cognac
