Crockpot Ground Beef and Veggie Stew

I modified an existing “poor man’s” beef stew recipe years ago and it’s definitely one of our favorites! It’s easy – put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and let it cook all day. The house will smell amazing and then you’ll have a delicious, hearty and comforting dish ready for dinner!

I typically meal prep on the weekends so when I make this, I chop my carrots and green beans ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until I’m ready. I also brown the ground been and onion in a skillet ahead of time so when I’m ready to cook all I have to do is cut my potatoes and then add all of the ingredients to the crockpot.

This is the perfect meal for a cold day!
