Being a ranching family, our family really likes beef, so I want to share a family favorite of ours that is great for kids – Hot Beef Sundaes.

I demonstrate how to make these delectable sundaes on the Cooking with CommonGround video, but you can find the recipe below.

Hot Beef Sundaes

1 lb. 1” Sirloin Cubes or Stew Chunks
2 packets of Brown Gravy Mix (our family of four uses 2 packets)
Russet Potatoes (enough for each family member to have a heaping serving)
Sour Cream
Grated Cheese
Cherry tomatoes

1. Start with boiling the potatoes so they are ready when the meat gets done. While the potatoes are cooking, heat a very small amount of vegetable oil in a skillet to brown the meat. Turn the meat pieces several times while cooking to brown all sides and be sure meat is cooked completely through.
2. Once meat is cooked thoroughly (but not over-cooked, as you want it to be tender) mix up the gravy packets and pour the gravy in with the meat to thicken.
3. While the meat and gravy are simmering, mash the potatoes with your family’s desired amount of butter and milk.
4. To serve, start with a nice pile of mashed potatoes. Drench with meat and gravy. Add grated cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and top with a cherry tomato.
