I made this Hamburger Pie (via recipe.com) for the first time last week, per Bill's request. I cut half the ground beef with spinach and it was phenomenal. Super healthy, super tasty and definitely a new staple around our house! Using pre-made mashed potatoes made the whole thing come together in a snap.
Every time we sign up to bring a dinner to a family in need we bring this because it is such a big treat, we feel like we need to share the beauty of these flavors.
I'll even paste the recipe in the post because I love it THAT much. We don't eat it as sandwiches though, we just eat it dripping with sauce, potatoes on the side and a salad (if I get that far).
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 5-to-6-pound first-cut or flat-cut brisket, cut into 3 pieces
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
- 1 12-ounce bottle stout beer
- 4 stalks celery, cut into large pieces
- 2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup tomato paste
- 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/3 cup dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon paprika
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the brisket with salt and pepper, then brown on all sides, about 10 minutes, adding the garlic in the last 2 minutes. Transfer the meat and garlic to a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker. Pour the beer into the skillet and simmer 30 seconds, scraping up the browned bits from the pan; add the beer mixture to the slow cooker.
