Hearty Homestyle Beef and Gravy with Mashed Potatoes


For the Ground Beef and Gravy:

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon thyme (optional)
1 cup frozen peas and carrots (optional)
For the Mashed Potatoes:

2 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare Mashed Potatoes: In a large pot, cover quartered potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, return to pot, add milk and butter, and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and cover to keep warm.
Cook Ground Beef: In a skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef until browned. Drain excess fat, add onions and garlic, and sauté until translucent.
Make Gravy: Sprinkle flour over the beef mixture, stirring to incorporate. Cook for 2 minutes, then gradually stir in beef broth. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and thyme. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add peas and carrots if using.
Serve: Spoon mashed potatoes onto plates, top with beef gravy, and serve hot.
