BEEF AND MUSHROOMS WITH SMASHED POTATOES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1-1/2 pounds red potatoes (about 6 medium), cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup french-fried onions

DIRECTIONS

Place potatoes in a large saucepan; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, until tender, 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook and crumble beef with mushrooms and onion over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes; drain. Stir in flour, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt until blended. Gradually stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain potatoes; return to pan. Mash potatoes to desired consistency, adding butter, cream and the remaining salt and pepper. Spoon into bowls; top with beef mixture. Sprinkle with fried onions.Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips

  • If you have time, cook the mushrooms separately from the ground beef. The beef will brown a bit more and the mushroom juices will stay with the mushrooms, creating even more flavor.
  • After returning the drained potatoes to the pan, heat them over low heat for 1-2 minutes before adding the butter and half-and-half. Any water will evaporate, leaving a richer flavor.
  • Try this: Spoon portions into individual ramekins. Top with your favorite cheese and french-fried onions. Bake at 350° for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melty. Yum!
