Broccoli Ham Stroganoff

Since this blog is for Liv, I thought I'd start off with one of her very favorite recipes:  Broccoli Ham Stroganoff.  This super simple recipe is made in the microwave.  I found it in a cooking magazine years ago & it is definitely Liv's most requested meal.  Enjoy!

2 cups frozen chopped broccoli
1 Tblsp. water
1 Tblsp. butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 Tblsp. all-purpose flour
1 can (10-1/2 oz) chicken broth
2 cups cubed, fully cooked ham
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1 jar (4-1/2 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained

Hot cooked egg noodles

Place broccoli and water in a 1-qt microwave-safe bowl. Cover & microwave on high for 3-5 minutes or until the broccoli is tender, stirring once. Drain; set aside and keep warm. In another microwave safe bowl, heat butter, uncovered, on high for 20 seconds or until melted. Add onion; cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually stir in broth (using a whisk works best for this); mix well. Microwave, uncovered on high for 4-6 minutes or until thickened & bubbly; stirring once. (You may have to stir more than once in order to keep the flour & broth mixed). Add the ham, sour cream, mushrooms, and reserved broccoli; mix well. Cook, uncovered, on high for 3-5 minutes or until heated through, stirring once.

Serve over egg noodles.
