- 1 bag Steak Fries
- 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp onion powder
- 1 cup frozen peas and carrots blend
- 1 Tsp dried thyme
- 1 Tbsp Worscestershire
- 1 Tbsp ketchup
- 2 Tbsp All purpose flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 cups shredded Colby Jack
- sour cream, tomatoes, green onions (optional garnish)
- Preheat oven to bake steak fries. I suggest baking the steak fries 5-10 minutes longer than the suggested time.
- Start browning your meat, and add the garlic and onion powder.
- Next add the peas and carrots and the thyme.
- Once meat is almost browned, add the Worcestershire and ketchup. Mix well.
- Add the flour to the meat mixture, and mix well.
- Add the chicken broth to the meat mixture to make the gravy. Simmer and reduce to thicken the gravy.
- Once fries are done baking, drop the oven temp to 350.
- Place meat mixture on top of fries, and add shredded cheese.
- Place in the oven and bake 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
- Let Irish Pub Nachos sit for at least 5 minutes.
- Garnish with sour cream, tomatoes, and green onions. Enjoy!
On a personal note, I honestly believe that steak fries are the best french fry for this Irish Nachos recipe. You need the ‘meatiness’ of the steak fry to keep up with the delicious shepherd’s pie filling and gravy!
Feel free to garnish these nachos with whatever toppings you desire! Or you can keep them plain. They will be delicious no matter what you decide!
