Instructions

  1. Gather ingredients, pan, 2.5 quart casserole dish, foil, measuring cups and spoons, small bowl, whisk, and garlic press.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. On the stove top, brown 1 pound of ground beef.
  4. Add 3/4 cup of beef broth, 1.5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, and mince 2 cloves of garlic and simmer 5 minutes.
  5. In the small bowl, add 1/4 cup beef broth and 2 tablespoons cornstarch and whisk. Add this mixture to the ground beef pan and mix continuously as that cornstarch thickens. Move quickly at this stage as it will only take a couple minutes to thicken.
  6. Turn heat off and the can of corn and can of green beans. Mix well and add to casserole dish spreading out evenly.
  7. Heat up 2 pounds of mashed potatoes. I like to prepare a large batch of homemade potatoes beforehand but you can also you microwaveable containers from the refrigerator section in the grocery store or prepare the mashed potatoes homemade before cooking your meat.
  8. Add a layer of mashed potatoes to your casserole dish.
  9. Add a layer of shredded cheese.
  10. Cover casserole dish with foil and bake 20 minutes on 400 degrees.
  11. Remove foil and let bake another 5 minutes or until the cheese on top is fully melted.
  12. Enjoy!
