Crock Pot Ground Beef Stew Recipe
We love stew recipes and this is a nice change from recipes we normally make. Since it uses ground beef, the consistency of the soup is a little different and a really amazing dinner idea.
The kids call it hamburger soup and love when this is on the menu for dinner! Even better, the crock pot does all the work and you can set it and forget it!
The stew was so filling and delicious and the best comfort food. Each bite was amazing!
Make sure you have a good slow cooker to make easy stew recipes with ground beef.
If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that and have fewer pans to clean up.
It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.
I also really like this crockpot as well. I use this all the time and it’s great.
My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.
I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.
Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!
I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.
