  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/2 Cup Onions minced
  • 2 medium Russet Potatoes 3 cups chopped
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 Cup Frozen Peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  • In an 8-9 inch skillet, brown the ground beef with the onions at medium-high heat.
  • Meanwhile, wash and poke holes in the potatoes. Microwave for 2 minutes and then turn them over. Microwave for 2 minutes and turn again. Repeat this until the potatoes are cooked yet still formed, about 6 minutes total.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel the skin off the potatoes, and cut them into bite-sized cubes.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of potato cubes and mash them in a separate bowl.
  • Once the beef has been fully cooked, add the mashed potatoes to the skillet. Stir until the beef is coated in the mashed potatoes. Add the milk and stir until mixture begins to thicken and bubble.
  • Add peas and potatoes and cook for another 2-5 minutes, until you have reached the desired consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.


This method allows for this dish to be gluten-free. If you don’t have an intolerance to gluten, you may prefer to add 2 tablespoons of flour in step 5 instead of the mashed potatoes.
