  • 1 1/4 pounds top sirloin beef, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart casserole dish with cookingspray. 
     
  2. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper.
     
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown beef and onion 6 to 8 minutes. Drain off excess liquid, if needed.
     
  4. Add carrots, peas, gravy, and thyme; mix well and pour into casserole dish. Place mashed potatoes over top and sprinkle with paprika.
     
  5. Bake 45 minutes, or until heated through.

To avoid a potential mess, place a baking sheet under the casserole dish, since this just might bubble over.
