Whenever you use ground beef in a slow cooker meal, you have to brown it first. Drain it and add it your slow cooker. You really don’t want all that grease in your food. Blech! If you can batch cook several pounds of it then freeze it into 3 lb freezer bags. Then when you need it for a recipe, it’s already precooked.
Spray your slow cooker liner with non stick cooking spray. I say this in every recipe because it really does make clean up easier. At the end of a long day, no one wants to spend an exorbitant amount of time scrubbing their slow cooker. Seriously, who has time for that?
Add your potatoes, drained corn and green beans plus your cream of mushroom soup. You really could use any cream soup in this that you have in your cabinet. Don’t have any on hand. Check out my slow cooker chicken pot pie recipe for directions on how to make your own cream of chicken soup. There are days when I use the convenience card of using canned soup and days when I can make my own. No guilt or judgment. It’s all about balance.
Put your lid on your slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours. When ready, open lid, mix together, then serve immediately.Print
