How to Make Creamed Ground Beef Over Mashed Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the onions, garlic, and ground beef in a large skillet.
  • 2Cook until ground beef is no longer pink.
  • 3Drain excess fat, then add salt and peppers.
  • 4Remove to a separate bowl.
  • 5Melt butter in the skillet.
  • 6Add flour, salt and pepper.
  • 7Cook, stirring constantly over low heat for about two minutes.
  • 8Do not allow to burn.
  • 9Gradually add milk, stirring constantly after each addition and allowing to boil before adding more.
  • 10This results in a smooth sauce.
  • 11When all milk has been added, continue to stir constantly and bring to a boil.
  • 12Allow to boil for one minute or until sauce is thick, continuing to stir.
  • 13Remove from heat and stir into beef mixture.
  • 14Prepare mashed potatoes: Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover by about 1/2 inch.
  • 15Cook until potatoes are tender.
  • 16Pour off cooking water (or save for a terrific addition to breads).
  • 17Add butter and milk (or cream).
  • 18Mash to desired consistency.
  • 19Serve ground beef mixture spooned over the mashed potatoes.
  • 20Variations: Add one teaspoon of your favorite spice blend to make a new and exciting variation.
  • 21You can eliminate the cayenne pepper if you don't like spicy hot foods.
  • 22If you do, then please add more!
