There's no need to choose between shepherd's pie and beef Stroganoff, thanks to this simple skillet dinner, which combines a creamy mushroom-and-beef filling with a smooth, buttery potato topping.

Using fork, prick potatoes all over. Microwave on high, turning once, until fork-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle.

Meanwhile, in 10-inch (25 cm) cast-iron or ovenproof skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Using slotted spoon, remove beef to bowl. Set aside.

Drain fat from skillet. Add half of the butter; melt over medium-high heat. Cook onion, garlic and thyme, stirring, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes. Add mushrooms, 3/4 tsp of the salt and 1/2 tsp of the pepper; cook, stirring, until mushrooms are softened, about 4 minutes.

Stir in beef, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle with flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in 11/4 cups water; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in peas and sour cream; remove from heat. Set aside.

Peel potatoes; place potato flesh inbowl. Add milk, parsley and remaining salt and pepper; using potato masher, mash until smooth. Dollop over beef mixture, spreading to edge; dot top with remaining butter. Broil until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Stirring the peas in at the last minute helps retain their bright-green colour.
