Recipe- from my friend Joy Charlton
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1.5 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
2 large russett potatoes(+butter and half and half for mashing)
1 cup beef broth, i use "better than bullion" paste
2 or so tsp cornstarch disolved in a little cold water
salt and pepper
saute onion in a little olive oil until starting to soften, add ground beef and cook thoroughly. season with salt and pepper. add mixed veggies and cook until heated through. add beef broth and cornstarch mixture and bring to boil and let simmer until thickened, about 4-5 minutes. taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
meanwhile peel and dice potatoes and boil in salted water until tender. mash with butter and half and half until pretty smooth but still a little firm/chunky. season with salt and pepper.
pour beef mixture into baking dish and top with spoonfuls of potato. pop into a 375 oven to heat thru and brown the potatoes a little bit. see, super easy!
