For the Ground Beef Gravy:

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion diced

2 cloves garlic, minced 

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups beef broth

1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Add milk and butter, mashing until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and set aside to keep warm. 
  2. Cook Ground Beef: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until browned. Drain any excess fat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet, cooking until the onions are soft and translucent. 
  3. Make Gravy: Sprinkle the flour over the cooked beef and onions, stirring to combine. Cook for 2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste. Gradually stir in the beef broth, ensuring there are no lumps. Add Worcestershire sauce, thyme (if using, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and let gravy thicken, about 5 minutes. If using, add the frozen peas and carrots, until they are heated through.
