  • 1 lb. of white potatoes, sliced  ¼ “ thick
  • white mushrooms or bellas,

  7. Put back the potato and mushroom mixture into the skillet with the ground beef. Add the chicken broth, dry mustard and paprika into the mix.  Cover skillet with lid and let the mixture simmer until the potato has softened.  Simmering process would take about 5-10 minutes.
