Mashed Potatoes with Meat Gravy

I love this recipe! This is a true Midwest meal, something my mom would make a lot. While the plate needs to be dressed up with some veggies for color, it is a fast weeknight meal.The meal almost reminds me of a more basic salisbury steak.

  • 1 My Mother's Mashed Potato Recipe or a store bought package
  • 1 Onion small
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 ¼ lb Ground beef 90/10
  • 2 TB Flour
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • ½ Cup Beef broth
  • ½ T Thyme fresh
  • ½ T Salt
  • ¼ T Pepper


  • Heat a large pan over medium, and add the beef. Breakup the meat with a utensil and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add onion and cook for another 7 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink.
  • Add garlic and cook for one more minute.
  • Add flour and mix into the meat so it’s coated.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and stir. Cook for another 5-8 minutes, until the sauce has thickened to a gravy-like consistency.
  • On each plate, make a well out of the mashed potatoes, then ladle a scoop of the meat sauce into the well.
  • I always serve mine with broccoli, but anything to add some color to the plate works.
