Great outline recipe. I did this quite different than specified: I cooked 1 lb hamburger, 1 chopped onion, and 2 small cloves of minced garlic. I seasoned it while cooking with some black pepper, sea salt, cumin, chili powder, oregano, parsley, cheyenne pepper, and red pepper flakes. I did it to my taste, so it was about a pinch each, if I had to guess-timate. Also added a splash of Worcestershire. I cooked until the onions were tender, semi-translucent on medium-high heat. I then turned the heat off, added the potatoes (used 4 medium ones, not the 6 specified, peeled and sliced not-to-thin, not-to-thick) and added them to the pan (dutch oven) and added 1/4 cup of heavy cream and 2/4 cup of water (to a grand total of 3/4 cup of liquid) and stirred it together, turned the heat back on, brought to a slight boil, put the lid on, and cooked on low heat for about 20-25 mins, then uncovered and let cook until the water had evaporated. Delish! Very easy and I typically have these ingredients on hand. The people complaining about the blandness need to know how to season their meat to what they like. The garlic is essential. One could have also done this as I specified using a beef bullion cube or 2 along with the garlic and onions, then added the cream/water or whatever you wanted to use. We ate it with a slice of American cheese melted over it and stirred in. Reminded me of Shepard's pie without the corn (the Shepard's pie I know anyway...) Hope this helps.
