Pan-Fried Ham with Okra and Red-Eye Gravy for #SundaySupper

Do you always have leftovers from Easter (or Passover) supper? This week the #SundaySupper crew is sharing great ways to revamp those leftovers. Ham is a family tradition - not my nuclear family - but my mom and dad's tradition. And we, inevitably, come home with slabs of it.

Inspired by an episode of Mind of a Chef, my Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf and I made some pan-fried ham with okra and red-eye gravy. This recipe used not only leftover ham but leftover coffee. I know, what's that, right?

I love that this recipe doesn't require measurements...and it only uses one pan!


Ingredients
  • slabs of leftover ham
  • okra
  • cornmeal
  • canola oil
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • leftover coffee

Procedure
Slice okra in half lengthwise. Toss them in a bowl with cornmeal and turn until well-coated. Heat canola oil in a skillet. Fry okra until crisped. Drain on a paper towel.


In the same skillet, pan-fry the ham till warmed. Remove the ham to serving platter. Top with okra. And for the gravy...pour leftover coffee into the same pan. Bring to a boil and cook till reduced by half. Pour the red-eye gravy over the ham and okra. Serve hot.

Here's how the rest of the crew revamped their leftovers...

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
