  • 250 g sauerkraut
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 small celeriac
  • 1 small head of spring greens, shredded
  • 2 round-shaped gammon steaks
  • salt, nd freshly ground pepper
  • 100 ml ham or vegetable stock
  • 100 ml german riesling
  • 2 tsp coarse grain mustard
  • 250 g quark


1. Drain the sauerkraut and rinse it well in cold water. Squeeze dry and remove as much water as possible.

2. Heat the oil in a wok and add in the onion, celeriac, spring greens and sauerkraut. Stir-fry for 4-5 minutes.

4. Pour the stock and white wine into the pan the gammon was cooked in. Cook briskly until slightly reduced.

5. Mix in the mustard and quark to make a soft, creamy sauce, seasoning to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.

6. To serve pile the stir-fry in the centre of 2 serving plates and top each portion with a gammon steak. Pour the mustard sauce over and serve immediately.
