- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/4 cup fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 4 medium potatoes
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups green beans (one can)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese (optional)
- paprika to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Remove grease. Add rosemary, sage and beef broth to ground beef and simmer for 5 minutes (or until broth is almost gone). Salt and pepper to taste. Spoon into bottom of a 2-1/2 quart casserole dish. Spread green beans on top of ground beef.
While cooking the ground beef, peel and slice potatoes and boil in hot water (hint: you're making mashed potatoes!). Boil until potatoes are soft. Drain water and begin mashing potatoes, adding milk and the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Add milk as needed for desired consistency. Spread mashed potatoes over the green beans evenly. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika as desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated throughout. Serves 6.
