Step 1

Prepare vegetables:
Peel potatoes and cut into small pieces.
Peel carrots and slice thinly.
Chop onion & garlic into small pieces or use a food processor.

Step 2

Cook ground beef in a deep frying pan breaking it up into small pieces. Drain off the fat when cooked. Next add the onion & garlic and continue cooking over low heat.

Step 3

While the meat is cooking, cook the potatoes and carrots. I like to use a steamer pot for this. I boil the potatoes in the bottom pot and let the carrots steam on top of them, this also saves hydro costs.

Step 4

Mix 1 tbsp cornstarch into the beef broth and add to the beef mixture. Add the pepper, worcestershire sauce & tabasco sauce. The mixture will thicken slightly.

Step 5

When the vegetables are cooked, add the carrots to the meat mixture & stir. Pour the contents into an oven safe dish.

Step 6

Mash the potatoes and add milk, butter or sour cream as desired. (I used up some leftover sour cream when I made mine.) Spread the mashed potatoes over the meat and pat down with a fork. Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
