Layered Beef and Potato Bake

Very much inspired by Pinoy Cook's turkey, duck, and potato bake, I went on to cook this extremely heavenly baked dish composed of potatoes and beef. I actually only adapted the idea of layering potatoes with leftovers, and from what I can see, we have a totally different recipe. As far as I know, my version was a spicy, beefy goodness that you can compare to a generously stuffed lasagna, and is quite heavy on the tummy. Alex loved it, and so did everyone else. The crisp cheese-crusted potatoes goes really well with the creamy spicy goodness of the beef filling. 

Layered Beef and Potato Bake

  • 3 or 4 large potatoes
  • 4 cups ground beef
  • 3 medium sized white onions, chopped finely
  • 8 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped parsley
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper 
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream
  • dried basil
  • cheese
  • oil for sauteing
  • butter for greasing
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix ground pork or beef, onions, garlic, soy sauce, parsley, ground pepper and salt.
  3. Mix and cook in a non-stick pan without oil until browned and dry (no more visible liquid). Set aside.
  4. While the beef is cooking, scrub the potatoes and slice thinly. I recommend using a mandolin slicer to have even slices.
  5. Grease a baking dish with butter.
  6. Line the bottom of the dish with potato slices, slightly overlapping the edges to make an even base.
  7. Spread half of the beef mixture on the potatoes, then top with another layer of sliced potatoes.
  8. Spread the remaining filling, top evenly with potatoes.
  9. Pour cream over the top layer, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and dried basil.
  10. Spread grated cheese on top.
  11. Baked for 30 to 40 minutes.
  12. Serve warm.
