Yield: 4 Servings
|2 eaches||(1/2-inch thick) ham steaks (about 1 pound each)|
|2 tablespoons||Vegetable oil; divided|
|1 cup||Strong black coffee|
Place ham in a large shallow container; pour milk over ham. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours. Remove ham from milk. Cut slashes in fat to keep ham from curling.

Add pan drippings, coffee, and pepper to skillet; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Serve gravy with ham and hot biscuits. Yield: 4 servings.
