Hey Friends! I wanted to share an easy slow cooker meal with you today.
Why This Recipe?
What I love about this recipe is that while it takes a few minutes to prepare the ground beef, the meal is made with simple ingredients and practically makes itself. It is a perfect hearty soup for the fall and winter months.
This slow cooker hamburger stew is perfect when you are looking for a dinner that you can throw together in the slow cooker and just let it go.
Slow cooker hamburger recipes are great for days when you don't want to have to think about preparing dinner later. It's also very economical to make and is often called a poor man's soup or crock pot hamburger stew.
This beef broth soup is made with just a few ingredients that are easy to find.
Ground Beef – of course, this is the star of this show. I like to a 90% lean ground beef, but you can use one with a little more fat too. You can substitute the hamburger meat with ground turkey or ground chicken if you like.
Potatoes – I like to use russet potatoes, but you can also use small yellow potatoes or red potatoes for this recipe. Just be sure to wash them prior to adding to the slow cooker.
Tomatoes - I use diced tomatoes for this recipe, I do not use tomato sauce or tomato paste, but you could add a ½ cup it if you wanted a stronger tomato flavor.
Vegetables – Save some time and use a bag of frozen vegetables - whatever is on sale. There are many different types of frozen vegetable medleys and they are an easy way to change up the soup. I like to use a mix with green beans, zucchini and bell peppers.
I should mention that you of course can use fresh vegetables if you have them around. This is the perfect soup to add leftover carrots, corn, potatoes, squash and cabbage.
Slow cookers are perfect for making so many meals, but I especially love to use it for soups because letting the flavors simmer together for hours makes for a wonderful and comforting meal. This recipe is the perfect soup to come home to after a long day.
