Easy and Savory Beef Casserole
You can save money by giving this Easy and Savory Beef Casserole a tasty Southern-style twist. Instead of buying pie pastry, top the casserole with strips of homemade biscuit dough in a decorative lattice pattern.
1 lb ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 (14.5-ounce) can chopped tomatoes
1 (10-ounce) package frozen corn
3 potatoes, peeled, chopped
2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 1/4 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 (10-ounce) can tomato soup
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 refrigerated pie pastry
Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook beef and onion in a large deep skillet over medium heat until beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain.
Add undrained tomatoes, corn, potatoes, mushrooms, carrots and celery to skillet. Stir in tomato soup, water, salt, pepper and garlic powder; cover.
Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes. Spoon into a large baking pan. Roll pastry into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface; cut into 1-inch wide strips.
Arrange pastry strips in a lattice pattern over beef mixture. Bake casserole until pastry is browned and filling is bubbly, about 20 minutes.
Easy and Savory Beef Casserole tip: If your casserole bubbles over during baking, immediately pour salt on the spill. After the oven is turned off and cools, you can wipe up the spill in a jiffy.
