This recipe was so close to a recipe that my grandmother use to make often that she called Mulligan Stew. Simply add 1/2 pound crumbled ground beef that had been boiled in water and drained. Mash some of the potatoes to help thicken it up a bit. A very yummy and filling dish on a cold day.
4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
water, enough to cover the potatoes
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon slat
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Place potatoes and onions in a 3-quart saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. (you would boil your ground beef in another saucepan here also if adding to the recipe.) Lower heat and simmer for 30 or 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Mash a few of the potatoes in the pan to thicken it. (combine the drained ground beef.) Season with the salt and pepper.
