Farmhouse Beef Casserole

This is a very tasty comfort food, that takes very little time. You can control the heat if the jalapenos are an issue, or maybe too spicy for the little ones.

  2. Lightly coat a 2-qt. casserole with cooking spray.
  3. Peel and grate the potato into a bowl.

This neede more seasoning and I added cumin and garlic salt. No jalapenos! My family didn't like it and ordered pizza. Hate to waste all those ingredients ?

Oh wow! The best thing I have eaten this year so far. I absolutely loved the addition of cabbage. What an unassuming recipe, but it just blew our mind. Thank you very much.

This was very easy and tasted WONDERFUL ~ loved the mix of flavors. I used Ro*tel tomatoes with green chilis, and a mix of colby jack and mozzarella cheeses. Personally, I would add more potatoes next time, even though it was delicious as written. Great weeknight dinner when time is short and you want something savory. Thanks for posting.
