4 cups peeled and sliced potatoes
2 cups diced beef
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cups milk1 cup frozen peas
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 pound Cheddar cheese, diced1 pinch paprika, or to taste.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Layer half the potatoes, half the beef, and half the onion in an 2-quart baking dish; repeat the layers.
Heat milk, peas, flour, butter, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, 7 to 10 minutes.
Stir Cheddar cheese into sauce until cheese is melted.
Pour sauce over potato and beef mixture; sprinkle with paprika.
Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender, about 1 hour.
Remove foil and continue baking until lightly browned, about 15 minutes more.
The taste was really good and the meal was filling. However, it took more than 2 hours to cook rather than 1 hr and 15 minutes. I suggest cooking the potatoes and then, make the dish. If it had not been for that, I would have given five stars..
