How to make an easy Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew (or hamburger soup). Using ground beef, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, tomatoes, and cheese, I make a simple and delicious crockpot recipe for dinner!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1.5 lbs (about 3) potatoes diced largely
- 3 carrots sliced
- 1 onion diced
- 1-2 garlic cloves minced
- 6 oz can tomato paste
- 2 cups water
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
1 ) Brown ground beef and drain. Set aside
2 ) Chop Potatoes, Onion, and Carrots.
3 ) In a separate bowl, whisk together tomato paste, salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, and oregano.
4 ) Add all ingredients to crockpot. Mix well and cook on low for 7 hours. Remember, it’s like an oven, if you lift the cover your food will take longer to cook.
5 ) Serve and Enjoy! Tip: We love to eat with fresh bread (great for dipping)! It also tastes wonderful topped with shredded cheddar cheese!
