Healthy Slow Cooker Hamburger Stew
Health Highlights


454 gm Beef, ground, extra lean
1 medium White onion (chopped - about 1 1/2 cups)
1 pinch Salt (to taste - can use other seasoning like Montreal Steak Seasoning)
1 dash Black pepper (to taste - can use other seasoning like Montreal Steak Seasoning)
3 potato Potato (peeled and chopped into tiny cubes - about 2 cups)
454 gm Frozen vegetable mix
1 1/2 cup Frozen yellow corn kernels
1 can(s) (14oz) Diced tomatoes, canned
237 ml Tomato sauce, canned
2 cup Beef broth (stock) (can use beef bouillon mixed with water)
2 cup Water


Put the ground beef and onions in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Season with salt, pepper and additional seasoning if you like. Cook, stirring and breaking up the beef into small crumbles, until the ground beef is no longer pink and the onions have softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

Drain off any excess fat. (There shouldn't be much if you used extra lean ground beef.) Scrape the ground beef mixture into the crock pot. Add the potatoes, mixed vegetables, corn, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth and water. Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours or until the vegetables are all tender. The potatoes will take the longest to soften, so be sure to chop them really small if time is an issue for you.

Taste and add additional salt and pepper, if desired.
