Can you put ground beef in the crock pot and do you have to pre-brown it?
This is probably the question I get asked all the time. The short is answer is yes and sometimes!
I use ground beef in the crock pot all the time. It’s in some of my favorite crock pot recipes. For this recipe, I do pre-brown the ground beef as breaking it up would destroy the potatoes in this casserole recipe.
However, there are many recipes that I don’t pre-brown. My most popular one is this crock pot taco meat. All the ingredients are throw in raw and pre-browning of the meat is not needed.
However, it is best to remember that when you are not pre-browning ground beef, you’ll want to use a lean cut of beef so that there is not a lot of grease in the crock pot.

Crock pot hamburger potato casserole variation ideas:
This recipe is classic and then you can easy switch it up to make it your own. It tastes similar to potatoes au gratin with beef mixed in! Here are a few ideas to change up this recipe to make it work for your family.
- Try using ground chicken or ground turkey. Some times these are more affordable than ground beef and still taste great in this recipe.
- Substitute the potatoes for frozen hash browns. I use the shredded hash browns and still layer this with the other ingredients. If using shredded hash browns, I would reduce the cooking time by one hours.
- Add in your favorite vegetables to make it a one pot meal! Green beans or peas would be delicious mixed in with this casserole recipe.
