Before you start

The Port wine sauce may be prepared a few days in advance.

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/375°F.
  2. Pour the Port wine into a small saucepan, add the butter, then bring to a low boil. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the mixture has been reduced to a thin sauce, 25-30 min.
  3. Add the cornstarch to a small bowl, then slowly pour in the broth, stirring thoroughly to avoid lumps. Transfer the mixture to the saucepan and continue to simmer an additional 10 min.
  4. Arrange the ham slices on a lightly greased baking dish. Cook 5 min in the middle of the oven just to warm them through. Pour the hot sauce over the slices, then put them back in the oven for an additional 5 min.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.
