Poor Man’s Stew, A quick and easy budget-friendly dinner recipe made from scratch and full of great flavor. Delicious stovetop or slow cooker option.

This is an easy meal to prepare and so tasty! I serve this for the family on a weeknight because it’s quick to make.

1 tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

1 tsp. onion powder

How To Make:

Add the cooked ground beef, potatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic to a 5-quart or larger slow cooker.

In a small bowl whisk together the tomato paste, water, salt, pepper, onion powder, and oregano. Pour this mixture over everything in the slow cooker. Stir.

Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours, without opening the lid during the cooking time. Serve with buttered sandwich bread.
