Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew

Recipe by  

"Incorporating ideas from other reviewers, I adapted the skillet version to a slow cooker version when we needed a meal to be ready when we got home. We loved this over hot biscuits. The ultimate comfort food with veggies included! Don't let the spices scare you and don't skimp on them. Their presence makes this a totally delicious meal!"

I left out the mushrooms and switched the cream of mushroom for cream of chicken, instead of veg broth I used chicken and added cream of corn. No peas, thyme, or celery powder and let me tell you..this recipe is a keeper! I made a batch of pillsbury rolls and poured the stew over each roll per person..such a great recipe!!!love love..will be adding this to my monthly menu.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stew Haiku: "Wow, this stew's ugly! Looks aside, it tasted great! Made happy tummies." Halved the recipe for 3, but 2 of us inhaled it. It looks, well, like dog food (probably due to cream of mushroom's unappealing hue), but still, this was a surprisingly awesome stew!

Delicious as written~ although next time I will double the cream of mushroom, veg broth & tomato juice- instead of tomato juice I used v-8. Definitely making this again!

I used beef stock, real mushrooms and fresh celery and it was awesome! I took you suggestion and served it with biscuits.

Had all ingredients and a lb. of ground beef thawed so decided to give it a whirl. Didn't have tomato-vegetable juice or celery flakes. Subbed a can of diced tomatoes and cut up one stalk of fresh celery and didn't change anything else. Might not win any awards in the "looks" department but I guarantee it will win hands down, the "quickie comfort" category. It's delicious!

I thought this was fantastic; husband thought it was just OK. I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the amount of liquid ingredients for the broth, and the flavor and texture was perfect for me.

I only left out the mushrooms because my family doesn't care for them. It was AWESOME!!
