If using frozen broad beans, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and blanch the beans for 2-3 minutes. Drain, then transfer to a bowl of iced water. Peel off the outer skins, if liked.
Set a large pan over a medium heat, add 2 tbsp oil and heat until sizzling. Add the shallot and sweat for 2 minutes. Add the jamón and cook for 30-40 seconds more. Add the stock and bubble until it becomes thick (about 10-15 minutes). Once it has reduced, stir in the broad beans and season.
Transfer to a serving dish, then crumble over the goats’ cheese and drizzle with the balsamic glaze and the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle over the mint leaves and serve with the toasted sourdough.
