  • 1 Lb. ground beef (browned and drained)
  • 6 Medium potatoes (peeled (or not) and cubed)
  • 3 Cups water
  • 1 16 ounce package baby carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons dry onion soup mix
  • 1 garlic glove (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1-1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 10 3/4 can tomato soup


Step 1
In a skillet, cook beef over over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain.
Step 2
Combine potatoes, carrots, water, dry onion soup mix, garlic and seasonings in crock pot.
Step 3
Add beef. Mix well.
Step 4
Cover. Cook 4-5 hours on high or until vegetables are cooked to your liking.
Step 5
Stir in tomato paste and tomato soup.
Step 6
Cover. Cook an additional hour, or until heated through.


Recipe calls for a 3 1/2 quart crock pot. You can also double the batch. Just cook in a bigger crock pot – in the 7 quart range.

You can add the tomato paste and tomato soup with the rest of the ingredients, if that is more convenient.
