I’ve been making this dish for a while and I usually bake it in the oven. But when I bake this dish, it can take up to 90 minutes to bake. Sometimes I remember to start it on time and sometimes I don’t. I wondered if it could me made into a slow cooker dish. I gave it a try and it turned out great.
This dish is a yummy comfort food dish. I love that it has everything in it, the starch, meat and vegetables too. I just have to add a salad or fruit and dinner is ready. Now that’s an easy dinner don’t you think?
I usually use just half a pound of meat in this dish but if your family really likes to have more beef in the dish, just add in a whole pound.
My son doesn’t like big pieces of onion and can find them really easily, in just about any dish. So, I usually chop them up fairly small. But If your family members all like onion you can leave them in rings.
This is also a good dish to sneak in a few extra vegetables like, sliced carrots, green beans and maybe even some chopped peppers or broccoli. Any of those should work really well.
I usually add a little salt and pepper to the dish for seasoning. But garlic or maybe even chili powder or cayenne pepper for a little more kick to it would work good. We keep it more mild at our house.
This recipe is a layered recipe. Add the potatoes, then onions and beans. Then add the cooked ground beef. I usually use one of my ground beef packages from the freezer to make it even easier to get assembled. Finally, add a can of tomato soup.
If you don’t have any tomato soup, tomato sauce will work well too. Cook on low for 8-10 hours and dinner is done.
Need a new slow cooker? I love the one I own. I used to go through slow cooker about once a year because I use them so much. But a few years ago I picked up this model and it’s still going strong. My mom had one just like it and it lasted for years.
