6 servings scale / convert
1 lb. ground beef
6 lg. potatoes or 8 md. potatoes
2 cans (14 oz. each) French-cut green beans, drained
2 cans (8 oz. each) tomato sauce
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Garlic salt, to taste
1 tbsp. flour
Prepare mashed potatoes according to your normal method. In medium skillet, brown the ground beef; drain. Add onion (or onion flakes), garlic salt, salt and pepper to the meat, cook for about 2 minutes more. Pour the cans of tomato sauce into the meat, add parsley, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and garlic salt, and stir in the flour. Cook for about 5-10 minutes or until thickened. Spread the meat and sauce mixture in the bottom of a 8x12-inch baking dish. Then spread the uncooked green beans in a layer over the meat. Finally, top with mounds of the mashed potatoes over the green beans, leaving little peaks on the tops of the potatoes. Bake in a 375°F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the tips of the mashed potatoes begin to turn a golden color.
Serve with sheepherder bread!

Nice variation on the theme, but why on earth use canned ingredients and onion flakes, whatever they are? Garlic should be fresh, not in garlic salt. Rub a crushed garlic clove into the sides of the oven-dish before adding ingredients. Avoid tomatoes and do try minced-lamb as an alternative to minced beef.
