This is a recipe that can be changed and suited for what you have in excess in your garden, or what is available at certain times of the year. I’ve made it multiple times and with frozen, canned, and fresh veggies. I am the pickiest eater and my kids also do not like onions so this is a great recipe for people like myself who don’t like the big chunks, but like the flavor. Enjoy!
6-qt Crockpot (Click to see mine)
1 lb 93% lean ground beef
1 can beef broth
2 plus cups of water
1 packet of onion soup mix
½ c- 1 c Corn (froz or canned or leftover cooked)
½ c Carrots (frozen or raw chopped into bite sized peices)
¼ c Green beans (frozen)
¼ c peas
Today I added 1 c of fresh zucchini to replace the green beans and peas
½ c elbow macaroni
Pepper and parsley to taste.
1. Brown the hamburger.
2. Set timer for 6 hours or high. Place browned meat into Crockpot, I don’t drain since it is so lean, (drain if not 93%).
3. Add Broth, water, onion soup mix, and any vegetable that isn’t frozen. Stir and make sure that the level of the liquid covers the mixture.
4. At 20 minutes prior to end of cooking time, stir in pasta and frozen vegetables. Add more water if needed. Add pepper and parsley.
5. Serve with parmesan cheese, cheez-its or have plain.
