- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 onion minced
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven for 400F.
Brown the ground beef, onion and garlic, on high heat, in a cast iron skillet. Stir often, ensuring that the beef does not stick to the bottom of the skillet. Once fully cooked, remove from the hot element and drain the grease drippings. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, flour, salt, pepper, peas and corn.

Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and the beef filling is starting to bubble around the sides of the skillet. It should take 15-25 minutes.
Let the pie rest about 5 minutes before serving.
