Category Archives: Hamburger and Vegetable Crockpot Stew


For dinner tonight, we had the easiest ever crockpot stew.  This is a staple in our household, especially when I know it is going to be a crazy day and the last thing I am going to want to do at 4:30 is cook.

Here’s what I did:

Combine in Crockpot:
6-8 potatoes, peeled and sliced
4-6 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef, browned (I had already done this, so it was cooked in a container in my refrigerator)
2 cups of V8 or tomato juice, or 1 cup tomato sauce and 1 cup of water
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons rice
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. 

You can serve this basically as a whole meal, although we add applesauce or a salad to round it out a bit.  It doesn’t look or sound like much, but it is so filling and satisfying…..great comfort food.  And of course, naturally GF, and quite economical.  I think I’ll be making this quite a bit in the next few weeks to use up my carrots from Walmart!
