Recipe Created By: Kathy Przywara
1 1/2 lbs potatoes, peeled , diced, and well rinsed 1 Tbsp margarine or butter to taste salt & pepper 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 med onion, finely diced 1 small carrot, grated 1 rib celery, finely diced 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed (optional) 1 lb ground beef or other meat 1 Tbsp potato starch or all purpose flour 3/4 cup beef stock 1 tsp dried thyme
Boil potatoes in water until fork tender. Drain reserving some of the cooking liquid. Mash potatoes using the margarine and about 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Add salt and pepper to taste. Beat with wooden spoon
until fluffy. They should not be too dry, but should be rather stiff.
Heat olive oil in large skillet. Add onion, celery, carrot and garlic if using. Saute, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add ground beef and cook until browned, breaking up larger pieces with wooden spoon. Spoon off any excess fat. Add seasonings and reduce heat. Add potato starch or flour and stir well to coat. Add cold stock and bring to a simmer over low heat. Let cool slightly.
Assembly: Transfer meat mixture to a 9" pie plate (deep dish) or baking dish. Spread mashed potatoes over top making irregular peaks. Dot with about 2 Tbsp margarine cut into small pieces. Sprinkle with ground pepper if desired.
Dish can be completed to this point and frozen. If freezing, cover tightly with foil and freeze.
Otherwise, bake at 400F for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are browned and gravy is bubbly.
If baking from frozen, put in oven when turning on. Bake for about 1 hr or until potatoes are browned and gravy is bubbly.
