Beef and Potatoes

Top Review by ElaineAnn

My mom used to make something like this. I made half the recipe and used leftover mashed potatoes, so it was quick and easy. I'm so glad I can get Bisto in my favorite local grocery store. Delicious and economical. Made for PAC Fall '07. Thank you for sharing.
