No one will probably like this, but it was a staple recipe when I was growing up. My Mom used ground venison b/c we were poor and that's all we had. I still like to make it once in awhile, but I use ground beef. It's really easy and filling. My Mom only added the peas if she need to stretch it a little bit more. Time is a guess b/c I have never timed making it.
- Ready In:
- 3⁄4 lb ground beef, browned or 3/4 lb ground venison, if you want to be traditional browned
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour
- 3⁄4 cup water

- 3⁄4 cup cooked peas, if desired
- mashed potatoes, hot
- Mix flour, water and salt together.
- Add to meat.
- Cook until thickened.
- Add peas if desired.
- Serve over mashed potatoes.

Actually a pretty good "poor man's" recipe if the salt is dialed down to taste and you add some onion, black pepper, garlic powder, and butter. I like it with peas and on mashed potatoes. Really does well on a cold day. I give it five stars because it is an awesome base recipe that can be altered to fit your own taste.... :)Reply
Very good! I made this for lunch for DH, his dad and I and it was a hit just like long ago. I did add some onions and garlic along with salt and pepper and served it over mashed potatoes. Along side was a nice green salad. Thank you for the memories and I definately will make again. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag game.1Reply
