Beef with potatoes - made in the oven

One of my comfort foods is a very simple dish of beef with potatoes made in the oven.

It's delicious, nutritive and it brings me back those memories from my childhood when my mom would cook it for a weekday's meal.

Something simple and fast to whisk together.

But so dear because of those memories.

It is also one of my son's favorites and he loves to eat it with a half pint of ketchup.

Just kidding, but sometimes I do wonder if he can tell any other flavor apart from the ketchup.

But I let him enjoy since ketchup is really healthy, especially for men.

To make this extra easy, I use frozen potatoes that are already cut into strips.

Any brand will do.

2. Add salt and pepper to the ground beef.
