Honey and Mustard Glazed Ham Fillet Recipe

A glaze of honey and mustard brings out the best in a ham fillet. A honey mustard glaze will add a perfect balance to the savoury Ham Fillet. Ideal for your main Christmas meal, or a delightful leftovers sandwich. Keep the stock for a delicious soup base.


  • 2.5 kg boneless Cribbin Family Butcher ham fillet
  • 1 bouquet garni (sprig of thyme, 2 bay leaves and sprig of rosemary tied together)
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1 tablespoon of black peppercorns
  • 1 whole bulb of peeled garlic
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 spoon of cloves
  • 2 tablespoons of wholegrain mustard
  • 110g of clear honey
  • 2 tablespoons of soft dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of mustard seeds


  1. Place the ham fillet in a deep saucepan and add all the vegetables and aromatics (bouquet garni, cloves). Cover it with cold water, enough to cover the ham fillet and bring to a boil.
  2. Once it begins to boil, lower the heat and allow the pot to simmer for around an hour and 15 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat and allow the ham to sit in the liquid for around 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the liquid and leave to cool until it can be handled by hand. Score the meat in an "X" pattern.
  5. Combine the honey, mustard, mustard seeds and brown sugar in a bowl until it forms a glaze.
  6. Spread the glaze over the ham fillet, ensuring the glaze reaches the crevices in the meat. Preheat your oven to 160˚C or gas mark 3.
  7. Place the glazed ham fillet onto a baking tray and place into a preheated oven for around 20 minutes or until the glaze is a deep golden brown color.
