- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef/ground venison
- 1 onion chopped
- 1-2 cups mixed vegetables (to cut down on time, I like to use frozen vegetables so I don't have to prepare them)
- 1 1/2 - 2 lbs potatoes
- 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- Salt, pepper, other seasonings of choice
Boil the potatoes until they are soft enough to mash. Once they are ready to mash, use half a stick of butter and mash until smooth.
While you are waiting for the potatoes to boil, saute the onions in a large frying pan. Combine the olive oil and onions and and cook over medium heat until they are slightly brown.
Brown the meat in a skillet. When the meat it no longer pink, season with seasonings of your choice (I generally just use pepper) and pour in half a cup of beef broth. Add the onions and allow it to simmer on low for about 10 minutes. You can add more beef broth if needed to keep the meat mixture moist.
Once the potatoes are mashed and the meat and onions have simmered for a few minutes, it is time to put together the pie!
Preheat the oven to 400*F. Then use a 9x13 inch glass baking dish to layer the meat, veggies, and mashed potatoes. Cook for about 30 minutes (until bubbling and brown). Then enjoy!
