Dianne Bibby’s Barbecued pulled-gammon buns with wild rocket, matchstick apple & cranberry slaw
Dianne Bibby cleverly has all the perfect matches with Sauvignon Blanc in this dish, the apple and cranberries, and the rocket.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small red onion, finely diced
several fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
a pinch of red chilli flakes
1 cup (200g) gammon, pulled into shreds
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper, to taste
For the slaw
1 crisp red apple, cut into matchsticks
a handful of dried cranberries
a spritz of fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon thick mayonnaise
4 soft white buns, buttered
matured white cheddar, grated
Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion until soft and translucent. Add the sage, chilli and gammon to the onion. Heat through and then stir in the barbecue sauce and water. Simmer for 2 minutes.
For the slaw, simply toss all the ingredients together in a bowl. To assemble the buns, start with a handful of rocket, followed by the gammon, slaw, cheddar and finally a scattering of pomegranate seeds. Place the bun lids on top and serve while the meat is still warm and the apple, cool and crunchy. Happiness is…..
