Mashed Potatoes

Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender, then mash them in a stand mixer.  Stir in the add-ins to taste, then set aside.


Brown the Beef

Cook the ground beef in the skillet until it's no longer pink, then drain off the excess fat.


Saute Veggies

Heat a tablespoon of the drained beef fat, then add the carrots and onion and saute.  Add the garlic and spices and cook for 1 minute.


Start the roux for the gravy by cooking the flour and butter for 2 minutes.



Mix the cooked ground beef and frozen peas into the sauteed veggies.
