  1. 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (if you're no longer having diarrhea, there's no need to peel the potatoes and lose their nutrients, just scrub well).
  2. 2 Tablespoons butter
  3. 2 to 4 tablespoons low-fat milk
  4. 1 × Salt
  5. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  6. 1 pound lean ground beef
  7. 1 small (or 1/2 large) onion, finely chopped
  8. cup ketchup
  9. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  10. 1 cup frozen peas and carrots mixture

A Pot, Skillet, Spoon

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2:

Fill a large saucepan with enough water to cover the potatoes by an inch or more and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender. Drain and return to the pan. Add the butter and 2 tablespoons of the milk and mash until soft and creamy, adding more milk if necessary. Season with salt.

Step 3:

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil. Sauté the ground beef and onion for 6 to 8 minutes, or until meat is cooked through, stirring frequently to break up the meat. Drain if needed. Add the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and stir well to combine. Add the peas and carrots and stir well to combine.
