  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green bell peppers (optional)
  • 4 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 oz Provolone cheese (or any cheese you prefer)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch to thicken the sauce


  • Using a cast-iron skillet (or a non-stick skillet), cook the meat, onions, and bell peppers until meat is brown and veggies are cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Add diced potatoes and cook with the lid on, for about 15 minutes on low-med heat stirring occasionally
  • If you are using a cast-iron skillet, add the milk and the cornstarch to the pan and stir. If you are using a casserole dish, transfer meat and potatoes to the dish and add a mixture of milk and cornstarch. Place the Provolone cheese rounds on top of the meat and bake in a 350F oven for 15 to 20 mins or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
