Ingredients

  • 9 potatoes - peeled and cubed

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef

  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans green beans, drained

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place potatoes and water to cover in a large pot. Bring to a boil over high heat; lower heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat; drain excess fat.

  4. Add tomato sauce, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt, ground black pepper, and green beans to the skillet.

  5. In a small bowl, mix water and flour together; stir into the skillet.

  6. Drain and mash potatoes. Spread potatoes over beef mixture. Poke 2 to 3 vent holes through top to release steam as casserole bakes.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Brush milk over potatoes and bake 5 minutes longer.
