Ingredients for this easy ground beef recipe

Ground Beef Muffins With Potato Tops

You'll need:

  • 1 pound/500 gm extra lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tb oil if not using a non-stick pan
  • 1 can/ 400 gm tin diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup/ 100 grams dried peas
  • 3 tb soy sauce
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 stock cube
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 heaped tb plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional - whole hard boiled eggs for each cupcake mold
  • For the topping - 3 cups mash potato made from mash potato powder and 1 medium yam, cooked and mashed

Here's how to toss it together:

  • Preheat oven to 440F/220 C
  • In a large saucepan, brown together meat and onions.
  • When browned, add all the other ingredients leaving the eggs and flour for the time being
  • cook till the meat is cooked. Taste test for deliciousness that suits you!
  • Stir in flour and eggs
  • Spoon into muffin molds
  • Optional - add a boiled egg into each mold and cover with the meat sauce
  • Bake for 40 minutes till the ground beef muffin is cooked and firm
  • Allow to cool and decant onto a serving plate
  • Top the ground beef muffins with mashed potato and/or mashed sweet potato. Pile it generously so it looks like icing atop a muffin.

Serve drizzled over with a little gravy with steamed vegetables.

While this is an easy ground beef recipe, this does take a little more time to carefully apply the topping of mash.

You could top with finely diced chives, but I prefer the look of the mash as though it was icing.

I prefer to use non-stick pans, which require no extra oil or grease, but if you're your pans are conventional, please be sure to add a tablespoon of oil when cooking the meat and to grease the muffin pans.
