Beef and Potato Skillet

Beef and Potato Skillet

Tonight I wanted to make something with the russet potato I had plus the pound of lean beef, green pepper and onion that I got at the grocery store. I looked for recipes on beef skillet or casserole but I decided to just make my own. So here’s what I came up with – it’s easy to adjust to your tastes:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 large baking potato
  • Italian seasoning, paprika, garlic salt (to taste)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese


Heat a skillet or dutch oven to medium-high heat. Dice the onion, pepper and potato. Brown the ground beef (5-7 minutes depending on pan). Take the ground beef out and place in a bowl or on a plate. Either leave the beef grease in or add olive oil to the pan. Add the peppers and onions to the pan and sweat – 5 minutes. About half way through add the potatoes. Also add seasoning. Cayenne is also a good spice to add. Stir to make sure they don’t stick. Add the ground beef back to the pan and set the heat to low/simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
