1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/2 oz oil or butter
1 tsp flour
pinch of thyme
stock or water
1/2 tsp salt
Heat the oil or butter until hot and cook the chopped onion in it until it is translucent.
Add the meat and cook until it changes color.
Blend in the flour, then stir in enough stock or water to moisten the meat.
Season to taste.
Cook over a low heat until it's tasty.
Place meat in a greased oven dish and cover with well-mashed potatoes (with a bit of milk and butter).
Brown in the oven at 400° F for 20-30 minutes.

Serve with simple vegetables, such as carrots or peas, and a tasty peppery gravy.
