Skillet Beef and Potatoes with Biscuits

This is a good, hearty, easy skillet dish.  It is just like my Meat Pie recipe minus the crust and the carrots.  Basically, I just replaced one carb with another, because I served this with my Go-To Biscuits and it was delicious. I was planning on making a homemade gravy, using beef broth, but ran out of time, you know how that goes.

This was fabulous and I think your whole family will love it.

Skillet Beef and Potatoes
slightly adapted from: Hungry Little Girl
(Printable Recipe) and (Printable with Picture)

4 large potatoes (I used Russet)
2/3 c. frozen peas
1 Lb. lean ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
2 c. prepared brown gravy
2 Tbl. milk

Peel and slice potatoes; add to a pot of water and boil until fork tender, about 10-15 minutes.  A minute or two before the potatoes are done, add the frozen peas to the boiling water.  Meanwhile, brown the ground beef in a large skillet; add the chopped onions and cook until tender.  Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Drain the potatoes and peas and add to skillet.  Add the brown gravy and milk.  Carefully stir until everything is coated with gravy.  Makes 4 big servings.

Jenn's Notes:  I made the recipe as typed above and I served it with my go-to biscuits and it was delicious!
