Hobo's Dinner - Crockpot version

Ron sent us this recipe in response to my Bachelor's Budget Beef Stew. The illustration above is of an oven casserole version of the same thing.

(Serves 3-4)

  • 1 lb raw hamburger
  • 2 medium carrots sliced thin
  • 3 medium sized potatoes sliced à la scalloped potatoes
  • 1 can mushroom or celery soup
  • Seasonings and garlic of choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

(Preparation: 15 Minutes. Cooking: 4 hours)
  1. In a medium crockpot, starting with the meat, layer the ingredients in the above order, spinkling the meat with 3 chopped cloves of garlic (optional), spices of choice, or barbeque sauce.
  2. Pour the undiluted soup over the top.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours, stirring ingredients together after 1 or 2 hours.

*Ted's Note: If you prefer to try the casserole version, lighly brown and crumble the hamburger before layering in casserole. Cover the casserole dish with foil, and bake ina 325 deg oven for 2 hours.
