Ham is fried until golden then served with a hot coffee sauce also known as red-eye gravy.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1 (1 pound) smoked ham steak, cut into serving pieces
- 1 1/4 cups brewed coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a cast iron skillet. Fry ham on both sides until browned. Remove ham and set aside. Stir coffee and salt into the hot oil. Return to a boil over medium heat, stirring to get any bits of ham that may be stuck to the pan. Cook until the mixture has reduced by 1/3. Remove from heat and serve over ham and biscuits.
