Easy & delicious! I cut the recipe in half and used a thick ham slice and it was terrific. Thanks for posting this. I'll make it again and again.

What can I say other than 5 stars when I enjoyed your recipe so much. I cut the recipe back to 2 small ham steaks and used brown sugar substitute with no problems. The bit of coffee is a definate part of the recipe do not omit it. Thanks Dreamgoddess for a neat recipe

I used regular white onion and reconstituted shitake mushrooms and an instant coffee bag in the gravy while it was cooking. It was popular among the gravy eaters.
