Potato porridge (Potato pottage) made with potatoes and ground beef

Ground beef and Potato dinner

This one-pot dish is made with a combination of Ground beef with Potatoes.  The juices from the ground beef get infused inside the potatoes and this creates a rich, intricate, and hearty flavor when combined with the Tomato sauce. It tastes so good that each time I made this my super picky kid would ask for more.
