Sweet potatoes and Ground beef casserole

Snow is all gone but I got some good pictures of the birds at our feeders. Here is a different casserole that is a tad sweet. We really like stuff more spicy but this was still good. Again we found it on Zaar wanting to use up two sweet potatoes we had.

1lb ground beef
one onion chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
2 large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup brown sugar (we used dark as that is what we had)
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons pepper
Preheat oven to 350
Mix ground beef,onion,bell pepper,salt and pepper.
Press in a thin layer in greased (Pam)baking dish. (We used a 9x11)
Peel potatoes and slice thin (the gadget works great for this just don't slice your fingers off.)
Now layer over meat mixture.
Mix pineapple juice,vinegar,soy sauce together now add brown sugar and flour and pour over potatoes and ground beef.
Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Check that potatoes are done before taking out we had to cook a tad longer.

Looks good and sounds very tasty...especially with the pineapple and brown sugar!

If you served it over rice then it would have cut the sweetness a little bit.

Kinda reminds me of a chinese sweet and sour dish.
