5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
8 ounces extra-lean (97%) ground beef
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup peeled, diced turnip
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary (You can also use 1 teaspoon dry.)
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups no-salt-added beef broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 to 1/2 cup fat-free milk


1. Place potatoes in a medium pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer until potatoes are tender. 
2. While potatoes are simmering, cook beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Add onion, turnip, carrots, celery, rosemary, garlic and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the broth and cornstarch. Pour into the skillet with the beef and vegetables. Add peas. Stir. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes or until mixture reaches desired consistency. 
4. Drain potatoes. Add milk and mash with a potato masher. Enjoy beef-vegetable mixture over warm mashed potatoes.
