Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 pounds ground lean beef
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons brown sauce mix
1 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper ( prefer more)
1 cup diced cooked carrots (only way I sneak this in the pie for my dd)
1 cup blanched peas
8 cups freshly mashed potatoes
1 cup grated Swiss cheese, for topping
2 tablespoons butter


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Make mashed potatoes.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet.

Add onion, ground beef, and garlic.

Stir and cook over high heat until meat is brown.

Add Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, brown gravy mix ( such as Knorr brown sauce mix), water salt, pepper, cooked peas and cooked diced carrots.

Cook over low heat for 10 minutes.

Spread mixture over a large buttered oven-proof casserole dish.

Cover with creamy mashed potatoes.

For a nice presentation, Pipe the mashed potato over meat, using a pastry bag fitted with a large star tube.

Sprinkle with grated Swiss cheese. Spoon melted butter over cheese.

Baked at 400 degrees until golden brown.
