Beef Skillet Hero

Beef & Potato Skillet

Reminiscent of a shepherd's pie, this skillet is loaded with ground beef and veggies in a flavorful gravy that gets topped with thinly sliced sweet potatoes. This is a healthy one too -- between the meat and vegetables this meal is the perfect way to fuel your body!


1 lb ground beef sirloin

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced celery

1/2 cup diced carrots

1 cup frozen green peas

1 1/2 cup beef broth, low sodium

1 tbsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp worcestershire 

2 tbsp tomato paste

1/2 tsp garlic powderr

2 tbsp cornstarch

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled


Olive oil spray


1. Spray a large oven proof skillet with cooking spray.  Add beef, break apart.  Add in the onion, celery, carrots, and season with some salt and pepper.  Once meat is cooked through, about 5-8 minutes, sprinkle with the corn starch.  Stir in the beef broth, mustard, worcestershire, tomato paste, and garlic powder. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. 

2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375F.  Slice sweet potatoes very thin, as if making potato chips, about 1/8 inch thick. 

3. Taste the gravy and adjust seasoning with additional salt/pepper, if needed.  Layer the sweet potatoes over the top of the meat mixture.  Spray the sweet potatoes with olive oil spray and season the top with salt/pepper.  

4. Bake until sweet potatoes are cooked through and starting to brown, about 40 minutes.  Allow to sit for 15 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
