Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
- 1 tbsp canola oil
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 large carrots, chopped
- 1 pound extra-lean ground beef
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp no-salt-added tomato paste
- 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
- 1 cup fat-free, reduced sodium beef broth
- 1 cup frozen peas
- For the Topping:
- 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-1 1/2-inch pieces
- 1/2 cup fat-free milk
- 1 tbsp light butter
Tip: If sauce seems too watery for your liking, combine 1 tsp of cornstarch into 1/8 cup of water and stir into beef mixture.
While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add potatoes, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain water. Add milk and light butter. Mash with a potato masher until smooth. Season if you like.
Pour sauce into an 11-inch by 7-inch baking dish and allow to cool slightly. Top with potato. Optional: sprinkle with 1/3 cup reduced-fat cheese.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
