Ingredients

1 pound ground beef
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth, divided
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Hot mashed potatoes or cooked pasta


In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.


Add 1-1/2 cups beef broth, onion, parsley, basil, garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until onion is tender.


In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and remaining broth until smooth.


Stir into beef mixture.


Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.


Serve over mashed potatoes or pasta.


Yield: 3 cups.


To prevent lumps when thickening with cornstarch, don't mix cornstarch with a hot liquid. Combine it with a cold or room temperature liquid and gradually add it to the hot mixture in a skillet or saucepan.
