Ground Beef with Potatoes


A lover of taste, I by no means interpreted the phrase “meat and potatoes” as a praise. WELL, for neither the primary (nor I’m certain, final) time, my assumptions have been confirmed useless fallacious. This simple recipe for Ground Beef and Potatoes is all of the issues I by no means imagined one thing as seemingly easy as fried potatoes and hamburger may very well be.

This simple floor beef dinner recipe is flavorful sufficient to carry my consideration, satisfying sufficient to maintain me full, and nutritious sufficient to be a worthy addition to our wholesome meal rotation.


  • 1 medium Russet potato or 2 white potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1 pound floor chuck
  • 1 teaspoon salt extra to style
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 small white onion diced

How To Make Ground Beef with Potatoes

Preheat 1/8 to 1/4 cup of olive oil in a nonstick pan to medium warmth for a couple of minutes. Add the diced potatoes and cook dinner till browned and crispy in most spots.

I prefer to cowl my potatoes whereas they cook dinner. The steam created helps them cook dinner just a little quicker from the within. Switch potatoes to a plate lined with paper towels to empty, put aside.

Add the bottom beef to that very same skillet and warmth to medium/excessive. Season beef with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon cumin and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Prepare dinner for 8 to 10 minutes till properly browned.

Add the garlic and onion, proceed cooking for two to three minutes. Add tomatoes, serranos, 1/4 cup water, salt and oregano to the blender and mix till clean.

Pour tomato combination into picadillo. Let it come to a boil and style for salt. Fold within the potatoes and stir till effectively mixed.

Style for seasonings and proceed cooking at a low simmer till sauce thickens and reduces, 7-10 minutes .

Take away from warmth.
