Ingredients :

4 tablespoons of butter

Add salt and pepper according to your preference.

For the meat and sauce: 1 pound of ground beef

1 onion of medium size, chopped

2 pieces of garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons of regular flour

2 cups of meat broth

1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

Add salt and pepper according to your preference.

You can add 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots if you like.

Instructions:
Make the mashed potatoes.

Put the peeled and cut potatoes in a big pot and add water to cover them. Sprinkle a little salt and heat until boiling.

Lower the temperature and allow the potatoes to cook gently until they are soft, which should take around 20 minutes.

Remove the water from the potatoes and put them back in the pot. Put the milk and butter, then crush until it is soft and creamy. Add salt and pepper to your liking. Put a lid on the pot to keep the potatoes hot while you make the sauce.

Cook the minced meat and make the sauce.

In a big frying pan, cook the ground beef on medium-high heat until it is no longer pink. Remove any extra grease.

Put the chopped onion and crushed garlic in the pan with the meat. Cook for around 5 minutes, until the onions are see-through.

Add the flour to the beef mix and stir for 2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste.

Slowly add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce while stirring, making sure to scrape off any browned pieces from the bottom of the pan. Heat the mixture until it starts to bubble gently and allow the sauce to become thicker, which should take around 5 minutes.

If you want, you can put the frozen peas and carrots in the pot during the final minutes of cooking. They bring color and extra nutrients.

Add salt and pepper to the gravy according to your preference.

Serve: Put the smooth mashed potatoes on plates or in bowls.

Put the ground beef and gravy mixture on top of the potatoes.

Heat it up and savor the coziness and warmth of this tasty dish.

I remember the first time I cooked this dish at home, my husband came into the kitchen because of the delicious smell. “What are you making?” he inquired, looking over my shoulder. When I told him, he looked very happy. He knew exactly what was going to happen.

We sat down to eat, and as soon as we took the first bite, it was like we were back at that shared meal. The mashed potatoes were smooth and buttery, a great match for the tasty ground beef and gravy. We both agreed that we should keep making this dish.

Since then, it has become a regular part of our home. It’s a meal that is great for a comfortable night at home, especially when the weather gets colder. I love how simple it is to prepare, but it tastes like a dish from a cozy restaurant.

One great thing about this recipe is how adaptable it is. At times, I like to mix things up. I have included mushrooms in the sauce for a natural taste, or mixed sweet and regular potatoes for the mashed potatoes. You can make it healthier by using ground turkey instead of beef or adding more vegetables like green beans or corn.

Another suggestion: if you are in a hurry, you can make the mashed potatoes in advance. They warm up nicely with a bit of milk to make them creamy again. The sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days, which makes it perfect for preparing in advance.

This meal has become our favorite choice for relaxed dinners with friends as well. It’s simple to make more food for a large group, and everyone loves it. There is something special about how the flavors and textures come together to create a very satisfying experience. Moreover, it is reassuring in a special way that only food made at home can provide.

Are you searching for a tasty and satisfying meal that everyone will enjoy? Try this ground beef and gravy served over mashed potatoes. It is a meal that unites people, making happy memories and satisfied stomachs. Maybe it will also become a favorite in your home, just like it did in ours.
