A New Recipe

I made this tonight for dinner - I love my crockpot:) I put it all together last night before bed, then cooked it on low all day today. It was ready in time to eat in the 15 minutes I had between getting home from work and having to be at scouts:)

GROUND BEEF CASSEROLE (what a completely un-exciting name)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
6-8 potatoes, sliced
1 medium sized onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
14 oz can green beans, with juice
10 oz can of cream of mushroom soup

Crumble uncooked ground beef in bottom of slow cooker. Add potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, basil and black pepper to cooker. Pour green beans and juice over all. Spread can of cream of mushroom soup over beans. Cover. cook on low 6-8 hours. For a creamier dish, mix half a can of water with the cream of mushroom soup before pouring over beans. Next time I'll add some green chile cause it would be really good with a little extra zip to it:)

I am soooooooooo going to try this. Thanks for sharing. I love nothing more than putting everything in one pot and forgetting about it! Thanks for sharing.

Yum, I'm making this tonight! I was just wondering what I was going to make tonight (having forgot to pull meat out or soak beans last night!) But I'll replace the green beans with zucchini:-) I don't have any more green beans.

Thanks for sharing!!
