  • 8 red new potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey (or lean ground beef)
  • 1.5 cups diced onion
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen carrots


  1. Rinse and dice potatoes into bite-sized chunks and toss with melted butter, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Cover and microwave for 7 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the meat and onion in an oven safe skillet over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain if necessary and return to skillet. Stir in the flour until incorporated, about 1 minute. Add the broth and Worcestershire and cook until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in peas and carrots and simmer until heated through, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, about 1/2 teaspoon each.
  3. Scatter the cooked potatoes over the meat and broil until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
