Comfort food at its finest. My husband and children love this meaty classic with yummy mashed potatoes. I like to use this recipe for mashed potatoes http://www.recipezaar.com/Perfect-Mashed-Potatoes-340736 Be sure to double or triple this recipe as it freezes well.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Melt butter/ heat up oil in large stockpot or sauce pan (depending on how large a recipe you are making) and saute onions and carrots until tender.
  2. Stir in flour and cook one minute.
  3. Gradually add beef broth and bring to a boil stir constantly.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, tomato sauce, worcestershire, oregano and ground meat.
  5. Cover pan and reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or so.
  6. At this point it is ready to freeze in freezer bags after cooling if you like. I like to freeze my mashed potatoes in freezer bags and then thaw both overnight in fridge and then assemble.
  7. I like to serve it to my family at this point with Perfect Mashed Potatoes on the side as that is how my kids like this.
  8. However, you can also pour into a sprayed baking dish (8x8 if one recipe), top with Perfect Mashed Potatoes and bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes until heated through.
