Ingredients for Ham, Rice, and Broccoli Casserole Skillet
I love to use ham steaks in recipes because they’re already cooked and ready to eat, so I don’t have to worry about cooking them. It’s kind of nice to be able to use the same cutting board for everything because nothing is raw.
- olive oil
- yellow onion
- minced garlic
- jasmine rice
- chicken broth
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- ham steak
- frozen bag broccoli
- cheddar cheese (or Mexican blend cheese)
How to Make Ham, Rice, and Broccoli Casserole Skillet
This recipe is a true one-pot meal. You don’t need any other pots or pans to make this. You’ll probably need to use a cutting board to chop your veggies, but truly that’s it. Serve this one paper plates and you basically have nothing to clean up. It’s kind of a mom’s dream.
Anyway, back to the recipe. To a large Dutch oven, add the olive oil and onion and let that cook down a bit. Next, stir in the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. This will help release all of that yummy garlicky flavor.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, except for the cheese, and simmer for 15-18 minutes with the lid on. Stir it up occasionally so that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Once that is all cooked, stir in the cheese. Serve and enjoy!
