"The traditional Easter meat with a traditional Middle East pasta, stir fried with veggies and then simmered with a chicken broth mixture. Ham stir fry? Yes, indeed! Ham leftovers never had it so good. Everyone who has tried this has loved this savory stir fry." — STEPHNDON

1 1/2 cups
1 (16 ounce) package
mixed broccoli and cauliflower florets
cooked ham, cut into strips
1 (8 ounce) can
sliced water chestnuts, drained
Do not put in the water chestnuts or the almonds. I love almonds and even though there's only 2 tbsp. of it, everytime I took a bite, that's all I could taste. The ham was great in it, I put much more because I feared that all I would taste were the vegetables. Also use caution if you add a little bit of water. It will start sizzling and you could get a minor burn.(You don't even need to add water
) Other than that I think you'll enjoy it. Even though I HATE cooked broccoli, I could barely tell it was broccoli.
This is average. We used cubed ham and that was a mistake. The flavor didn't come through. Also, I think it was a bit too much cornstarch.
Great recipe when your tired of the same old stuff for dinner. I used a pre-packaged fresh brocoli and carrot stir fry (obviously left out the sauce). Left out water chestnuts because I just couldn't find them. I only used 2 tablespoons of cornstartch. I thought 1/4 cup was a lot. I dilute my cornstartch with a few tablespoons of very cold water before adding to any recipe. That way you don't use as much and aviod it from turning to sludge later!
This is a colorful, simple, delicious dish. It would be very good served over rice too. We omitted the almonds because of allergies, and the kids would have done better without the water chestnuts, but I loved them. I'm definitely going to make that one again.
OUTSTANDING! My whole family loves this dish, it's now my husband's favorite. It was also a great introduction to couscous, something I had never made before but make often now!
Too sweet, only use 1 or 2 Tb of brown sugar.
This was a very good supper my kids all loved it. I did change it a bit. I used brown rice instead of couscous and I omitted the sugar water chestnuts and almonds. It was very tasty and I will make it again. Thanks.
an ok meal. not very savory. if i make again i would spice it up a bit. use a bit less sugar, its too sweet.
