In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and return to pot; shaking pan, dry over low heat, about 1 minute. Mash coarsely; stir in milk and green onion.

Meanwhile, in skillet, fry beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate. Drain fat from skillet.

In same skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry mushrooms, onion, thyme, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden, about 8 minutes.

Whisk together stock, cornstarch and mustard; stir into skillet. Add beef and peas; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve over potatoes.
