Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 eaches (1/2-inch thick) ham steaks (about 1 pound each)
1½ cup Milk
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil; divided
1 cup Strong black coffee
¼ teaspoon Pepper

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.

Cook 1 slice of ham in 1 tablespoon oil in a heavy skillet over low heat until light brown; turning once. Remove from skillet, and keep warm. Drain off pan drippings, reserving for gravy. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and ham.

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.
