French Onion Beef & Veggie Bake

I love repurposing leftovers! I had some of the gravy leftover from the other night as well as some ground beef and veggies I needed to use up. I figured I’d toss them together in a casserole.

2 ½ lbs Ground Beef

3 cups Broccoli

1 large Zucchini; chopped

1 cup Carrots; chopped

1 cup Onion; chopped

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Dried Thyme

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 ½ cups Cheddar Cheese

Gravy:

⅓ cup Butter

3 cups Onion; chopped

4 cloves Garlic; minced

1 teaspoon dried Thyme

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

4 cups Beef Broth

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 Tablespoons Marsala Wine

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and melt the butter. Add the onions and stir until caramelized; about 40 minutes. Add in the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant. 
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Season with salt, pepper and thyme, then sprinkle in the cornstarch. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and stir until thickened. Turn off the heat and set aside. 
  4. In a large dutch oven over medium heat, brown the beef until cooked through. Add the vegetables and seasonings, cooking until tender. Pour in the French onion gravy and cover, simmering for 10 minutes. Scoop into a casserole dishes and top with cheese.
  5. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  6. Enjoy!
