‘Chinese’ Pie This one-dish meal doesn’t have anything to do with Chinese food. Originating more than a century ago in Canada, it came from Chinese immigrants making do with ingredients from their new environment. This is a wonderful comfort food dish that is a family favorite. Kids love this dish! Serve with a green salad and some nice crusty rolls.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart casserole with butter.Advertisement
Heat canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir ground beef into onion, season with salt and black pepper, and cook ground beef mixture until browned and crumbly, about 10 more minutes. Drain excess grease.
Spread cooked ground beef mixture into bottom of the prepared casserole dish; pour cream-style corn over the ground beef in a layer; top with layer of mashed potatoes.
Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are browned and casserole is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
