Here is a classic recipe for those men in your lives that are looking for a meat and potatoes dinner. It is easy and quick and comes together with prep and baking time combined at 60 minutes.
It is easy to adjust the ingredients depending on how many men and how hungry you expect them to be at dinner time.
The recipe comes from Jamie’s Good Food cookbook, which has been a great success for me. Every one of his recipes seems to work perfectly. I used a smaller amount of ingredients as I don’t have many men to feed. Here is how I made the baking pouches. I used Martha Stewart’s foil and parchment wrap, which is amazing. I blogged about the product on May 6, 2012 on this blog. I purchased it on amazon.com, and am still using my box. It seems to last forever.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix 3/4 pounds ground beef, with 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, one egg, and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add minced garlic if desired. Combine well and form into two patties. As an option, could also add 1/8 cup of chili sauce or ketchup.
Prepare the foil and parchment wraps. Foil on the outside and parchment on the inside, or use Martha’s wrap. Place into a baking sheet pan. Into another bowl add 1 tablespoon olive oil to 1/4 bag of small-sized carrots, 1 sliced white onion, and 2 Yukon baking potatoes which have been sliced lengthwise. Mix well and season to taste with herbs or salt and pepper.
Place the vegetable mixture first into the pouch wraps and then top with the meat patty. Seal the pouches and roast for 40 minutes or until the meat is cooked through and the vegetables are fork tender.
Open and serve. Simply delicious for a meat and potatoes meal. This is a once in three-month meal for us, as we limit our red meat intake.
Perfect for a cold winter night.
