Pot roast gammon with leeks, tomatoes and mustard seed – slow cooker recipe gammon

I have got my slow cooker out again after what seems far too long and this time I had a gammon joint to cook I also had a bowlful of home grown tomatoes from the back garden and I wanted to mix the two so here’s my easy slow cooker recipe gammon

Pot roast gammon with leeks, tomatoes and mustard seed

1kg joint of smoked/unsmoked gammon
dash of olive oil for frying
1 leek
2 cloves of garlic
1 stick of celery
10 small tomatoes
handful of mustard seeds
salt and pepper

Rinse the joint under running water, season with salt and pepper and then fry off to seal the edges in a frying pan (I had a few pork sausages to use up as well so I fried those off too and added them to the pot) Place in slow cooker.

In the same frying pan, saute the sliced leeks until soft and add the garlic for a minute or two. Add to the slow cooker

Add the mustard seeds sprinkled all over and cut the tomatoes into four and add to the slow cooker.

This recipe doesn’t require any juice but it will make some during the cooking and you’ll have a very tasty gravy to serve with your gammon. It can be a bit fatty depending on your joint in which case leave in a jug and let the fat rise to the top where you can scoop it off.

Cook the joint on high for two hours and low for another four hours, the meat will be very tender and will have absorbed the surrounding flavours

I served mine with roast potatoes (it was Sunday) carrots and french beans but it was so delicious I forgot to take a photo of the meal! You’ll have to take my word for it that it was delicious ;)

    I love the sound of this. I always do the same old thing with Gammon, I’d never have thought of putting those flavours with it, very yummy.
