Country Ham With Orange Pan Sauce

  • Yield: 6 servings


  • 6 (1/4-inch thick) country ham slices
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped chives
  • Traditional Southern Biscuits


  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ham slices and sear on both sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the ham from the skillet and set aside.
  • To the pan drippings, add the shallots and cook until softened. Deglaze with Grand Marnier and cook until almost dry. Add the mustard and stir until well combined. Add the chicken stock and cook until slightly reduced. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and finish with chopped chives.
  • Split the biscuits. Place a piece of ham on the bottom half of the biscuits. Drizzle with sauce and top with the remaining biscuit half.
