Crock Pot Italian Hobo Stew Notes
- Jackie used Simply Potatoes in her recipe, but they weren’t available at my grocery store, so we substituted O’Brien potatoes. Country style hash browns would also work.
- We used our Crock Pot Make Ahead Ground Beef to make this recipe even easier to just dump and go.
- We used our 6 quart Cuisinart 3 in 1 Slow Cooker but any 6 quart slow cooker should do just fine.
- 16 oz package Simply Potatoes - diced with onions & uncooked we used 16 oz O'Brien potatoes instead.
- 1.5 pounds ground chuck
- 2 cup chopped onion divided
- 15 oz can diced tomatoes with oregano basil & garlic
- 29 oz sliced carrots (2-14.5 oz cans) undrained
- 30 oz peas (2-15 oz cans) undrained
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Sauté your ground beef with one cup of your chopped onion and season to taste with salt and pepper
- Layer your ingredients in this order: potatoes, ground chuck, remaining cup of chopped onion, tomatoes, carrots with juices, peas with juices.
- Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 5-7 hours
