Total Time

6 servings

My dad particularly loved this casserole, which has been a family favorite for over 60 years. It’s just a simple, hearty combination of ground beef, potatoes and kidney beans. Both my husband and I grew up on farms in the Midwest, where lots of cattle are raised and lots of beef used in recipes.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, optional
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the potatoes, beans, soup, parsley, chili powder if desired, salt and pepper.
  2. Spoon into a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
