I read other reviews and tweaked mine a bit. I used 2 lbs ground chuck, browned with onions, 2 minced garlic cloves, and a few dashes of Worstershire sauce on Tuesday. On Wednesday I warmed the beef/onions, added about 2 Tbsps ketchup, a can of beef broth, a 1 lb pkg of frozen carrots & peas, a can of beef gravy, a packet of onion soup mix and about 1/3 cup of water. I let that simmer for about 10 minutes while I got the potatoes ready. Now here is where I cut a corner I shouldn't have. I mixed 2 pkgs of instant mashed potatoes. I should have made the Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes (found on this site). I also should have put this in a larger casserole dish than a 2 qt. Anyway, I topped it with a combo of shredded colby/monterey jack and baked for 20 minutes. My husband really liked it. He said it reminded him of a thicker beef stew with mashed potatoes on top.
I will make it again and keep tweaking it until I am more satisfied with it, perhaps using corn with the peas instead of carrots next time.
