  • 1
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2
    Stir in mixed vegetables, tomatoes, gravy, marjoram and pepper. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
  • 3
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat water, butter and garlic salt to boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in milk, dry potatoes and parsley just until moistened. Let stand about 30 seconds or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff potatoes with fork. Serve beef mixture over potatoes.

Expert Tips

  • Oregano can be used in place of the marjoram; both are mint-family herbs from the Mediterranean mountains.
  • In place of the potatoes, try this thick, rich stew over biscuits, rice or pasta.
