(Makes 6 Servings: 2 Quart Casserole)


4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon finelly chopped onion
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
5 carrots, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 lb Jubilee Farm grassfed ground beef
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp ground garlic


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash. Mix in butter, finely chopped onion and 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste; set aside. 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, adding carrots and cooking until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, mash (or dice) and set aside. Preheat oven to 375Âș.

Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add onion and cook until clear. Add ground beef and cook until well browned. Pour off excess fat, then stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add ketchup, worcestershire, ground garlic, and beef broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Spread the ground beef in an even layer on the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish. Next, spread a layer of mashed/diced carrots. Top with mashed potatoes and the remaining cheddar cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Maple Pork Tenderloin

Maple and mustard make a sweet-and-savory mahogany-colored sauce. A delicate note of sage gives it a wintery touch. Fresh thyme or rosemary also work if you prefer.

Jubilee Roasted Whole Chicken

This is amazingly simple! Just coat the chicken and throw it in the pot. If you really want to complicate this recipe then you can try throwing it in the pot from a distance, maybe 3-point range. For me, I just plop it in there and get delicious results every time :)

Maple Glazed Hamsteaks

What I like about this recipe is that it is a quick and easy way to prepare a ham. The ham steak is simply brushed with this glaze while being fried in the pan. The glaze is a combination of just a few ingredients—maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and Dijon mustard.
