Presto Stew & Garlic Mashed Potatoes

To lighten up this recipe, I use ground turkey breast and fat-free gravy. This hearty stew is also good served over your favorite pasta, biscuits or leftover mashed potatoes. Mary Tallman - Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) fat-free beef gravy
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/3 cups mashed potato flakes

  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, gravy, vegetables, marjoram and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
