1 lb. ground beef browned and drained
1.5 lbs potatoes, diced large
3 carrots, sliced
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove minced (I had this on hand already)
6 oz. can tomato paste
2 cups water
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
Brown the beef in a skillet on the stove-top, drain fat.
Add the beef to the slow cooker along with the potatoes, onions, carrots, and garlic.
In a small bowl whisk together the tomato paste, water, salt, pepper, onion powder, and oregano. Pour this mixture over everything in the slow cooker. Stir.
How long do I cook poor man’s stew?
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until the potatoes are tender.
Serve in bowls and enjoy!
