Pierogi Beef Skillet

This is a new recipe that has been a real hit in my house. It is cheap, quick to prepare and also easily adjusted for taste preferences:

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 can of beef broth
1 pkg. frozen perogies (16 oz), thawed
2 cups frozen, mixed vegetables, thawed
1/2 tsp. salt (or garlic salt)
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. italian seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (for a sprinkled garnish)

1 - fry up beef and onions and drain (leave a little fat for next step)
2 - sprinkle with flour and stir until blended
3 - gradually add broth; bring to boil and cook x 2 minutes or until thickened
4 - add perogies and veg and heat through

The flour blends in better (step 2) if you leave a little fat undrained from the beef. I also fried up the perogies before adding them, because I prefer them a little crispy on the outside.

Give it a try!
