2 lbs potatoes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 onion, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
1 3/4 lbs ground beef
4 teaspoons tomato paste
1 1/2 cups beef stock
1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and boil potatoes for mashing. In a large skillet or dutch oven over medium low heat, saute garlic, onion and carrots in oil until slightly softened.
Turn up the heat and add the ground beef. Continue cooking until brown. Stir in the tomato paste, beef stock and peas. Season with salt and pepper.
Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a casserole dish if not using a dutch oven. Mash potatoes (with milk and butter to taste) and spread over the top of the dish. Brush with melted butter and bake for 40 minutes.Enjoy with the family on a chilly night!
