Turkish Potatoes with Ground Beef ("Kiymali Patates")

"Meat n' potatoes" meets "Istanbul!"

This is a great, hearty dish that the kids love. Mash up the potatoes before serving if your kid likes mashed potatoes better than the cut fries style (a la my son's bowl). This is naturally gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF), soy-free (GFCFSF), corn free, and egg free! Afiyet Olsun!

1/4 lb. ground beef
5-6 medium-sized brown potatoes, chopped into large chunks
1 onion, chopped
1/2 of a 6-oz. can of tomato paste
Olive oil

Sautee onions in olive oil in a large soup-type pot. Add ground beef and brown. Add tomato paste. Add potatoes. Add water to be about 1-inch above the level of the potatoes. Add salt to taste. Cook on medium for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.

I made this tonight with a few alterations. It was quite good and I served it with GF/CF/EF/YF garlic bread. Barely any left for heat-ups.
