Scrumptious Beef and Potato Casserole


It may not be steak and potatoes, but this beef and potato casserole topped with Cheddar cheese and whole wheat cereal is definitely one of my husband's favorite recipes for a weekend supper. It's great the next day, but don't reheat it in the microwave or the toppings will be soggy.

  • 2 tablespoons shortening

  • 2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 3/4 inch pieces

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup water

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

  2. Melt shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion; cook and stir until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes.

  3. Mix milk, condensed soup, sour cream, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
