Campbell’s Cheesy Beef Skillet Dinner


This Winter has been soooo long and soooo cold. And it’s only February. Us Canadians can look forward to at least another couple months of this too. When it’s cold outside, I love to eat warm, comfort-type food. This Campbell’s Cheesy Beef SKillet Dinner recipe is exactly the type of meal that I’m talking about. Not only is it fast to throw together on a busy weeknight, but the kids love it, and so do my husband and I. It’s cheesy, ooey, gooey goodness is just what I need to warm me up on a cold Winter day. This is also a great, quick meal for when the kiddos come inside after skating, skiing or tobogganing in those frigid Winter temperatures. You can have this dinner plated in no time and the my kids gobble it right up. I skipped on the green pepper in this recipe because my kids really don’t like it, and to be completely honest, neither do I. It was still amazing and proof that it is okay to play around with recipes sometimes to get them exactly how your family would love them. This recipe is proof that Campbell’s recipes are called “simple to make, easy to love.”


1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
1 lb (454 g) lean ground beef
1 tbsp (15 mL) steak spice
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cups (500 mL) button mushrooms, sliced
1 can (796 mL) tomatoes, diced
1 can (284 mL) CAMPBELL’S® Condensed Low Fat Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
2 cups (500 mL) macaroni, cooked to al dente and drained
3 cups (750 mL) aged Cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
1/4 cup (60 mL) green onion, chopped




1. Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Crumble in ground beef; season with steak spice. Cook, breaking up into small pieces, for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Add onion, green pepper and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp.


2. Stir in tomatoes, soup and mustard. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in cooked macaroni and 1 cup (250 mL) cheese until well combined.


3. Sprinkle the top with remaining cheese and green onion. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
