Mom’s Meat & Potatoes

My mom made this quite often as I was growing up. It’s an economical way to provide a delicious main dish. We’d usually have spanish rice on the side and pinto beans too or maybe a simple salad made of thin cut iceberg lettuce seasoned with salt and pepper and tossed with a bit of mayonnaise.

I am blessed to have many warm and fuzzy memories of my youth that center around a happy Momma, a warm kitchen and delicious food

Today I love this stuff in a burrito, oh yum!

Mom’s Meat and Potatoes would also make a perfect taco filling

Precook 3 washed potatoes in the microwave (I usually set the timer to just under the number of potatoes for baked potatoes so for 3 potatoes I set my timer for 2 baked potatoes) after they cool peel and chop them

Sauté 1/4 cup chopped onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil for about 5 minutes

Add in 1 pound ground round or ground turkey, cook the meat until just about done. By this time the onion should be soft.

Drain any fat

Add 1/4 tsp salt, a pinch of pepper and a pinch of dried oregano

Add in the garlic (2 cloves minced), cook for 3 more minutes

Add in the chopped tomato (1 medium size tomato)

Cook another 2/3 minutes

Add potatoes in

Cook for an additional 5 minutes

Taste for salt, add more if desired.



Hi, thanks for stopping bye. I have so many passions, not quite sure (ever,) where to start. I hope you find posts here on my blog that are interesting to you. I have a culinary background, having spent time studying in Hollywood Ca. and in the South of France. I am also a passionate amateur photographer. Lately I've been trying my hand at the written word as well. Enjoy.
