Belize Beef on Spiced Potatoes. If you haven't tasted beef seasoned Caribbean Jerk style you are in for a treat. Seasoned ground beef over potatoes makes a nice change for Saturday lunch or stay at home dinner.
1 pound ground beef round
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) zesty diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/2 teaspoons jarred minced garlic
1 teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
2 large unpeeled baking potatoes, such as russets (8 to 10 ounces each)
Salt, pepper to taste
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3/4 teaspoon jarred minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
1. Brown ground beef in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is not pink, breaking up into small crumbles. Pour off drippings. Drain and reserve 1 tablespoon of the tomatoes. Add remaining tomatoes, 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic and 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning to beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover skillet; continue simmering 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Meanwhile cut potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices; pierce in several places with a fork. Dip in cold water; sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper and jerk seasoning. Place in single layer on nonstick baking pan. Broil 3 to 6 inches from heat 10 to 12 minutes or until tender and lightly browned, turning once.
3. Combine topping ingredients and reserved 1 tablespoon tomatoes in small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spoon beef mixture over potatoes. Serve with topping.
