I think I spent twice as much time chopping and slicing the vegetables as I did on cooking this dish. The actual time at the stove is about 20 minutes and you need to have all your ingredients on hand for quick work. For me, it was also an unusual process. But the finished dish is well worth the making of it.

Yield: 3-4 servings
Time to make: 2 hours, mostly simmering time.
A nice satisfying stew. I really liked this. And except for a tiny ½ teaspoon of potato flour it is pretty much devoid of starch, so it’s a good paleo choice. With extra time, it would work well in a slow-cooker. Actual preparation prior to simmering only takes 15 minutes or so.
Vegetables with Ground Beef

Since I prefer not to use the canned food the recipe calls for, I took a little more time to make this, but still under 30 minutes. Rather than canned cream of mushroom soup, I made up a white sauce flavoured with fresh mushrooms, onion and nutmeg. And instead of opening a can of mixed vegetables, I steamed some fresh vegetables I had on hand: carrots, green beans and celery. I also had some leftover mashed potatoes from a previous meal to use as a base.
The recipe is subtitled “Shepherd’s Pie” but it is not baked. It is really a meat sauce to serve over potatoes, rice or noodles. Perfect for a quick meal on a busy day.
