Hamburger flavors in a soup! Not just any soup, a healthy whole 30 compliant and paleo soup that cooks in your slow cooker in just a couple of hours.
I love when a recipe comes together on the first try. I intended to make my Slow Cooker Hamburger Casserole but it’s been raining nonstop for a couple of days now (I’m not complaining, we need the rain) so I switched it up. Something about rain makes me want soup.
Another easy recipe. So easy. After you brown the meat & chop the veggies, you just throw everything in the slow cooker and let it do its magic. You can use your preferred ground meat whether it be beef, pork, chicken or turkey but personally I think ground beef works best. It’s important to brown the meat prior to adding it to the slow cooker. If you add the meat in raw, the stew will be too greasy.
- 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
- 1 lb white sweet potatoes or potatoes, chopped
- 42.5 ounces diced tomatoes
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1½ tsp ground mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- Handful fresh parsley
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp pepper
- Brown ground beef in a large skillet. Drain grease.
- Add ground meat to the slow cooker along with all other ingredients.
- Stir to mix well.
- Cook HIGH 2-3 hour or LOW 4-6 or until potatoes are soft.
If you want to make this more of a soup than stew all you need to do is add in 2 cups of low-sodium beef broth.
