Slow Cooker Ground Beef
This simple recipe for slow-cooked ground beef is great for stocking your freezer! Just pull out a bag of already cooked meat and you can have dinner on the table in no time!
Servings 20 servings
- 7 pounds ground beef I like 90/10, but any will work
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
Add the ground beef, salt, and pepper to a 6 quart or larger slow cooker.
Set heat to low, cover, and cook for 1 hour. Use a potato masher to break up the meat.
Repeat breaking up the meat with the potato masher ever 2 hours until the meat is cooked through. This should take about 6 hours for 7 pounds of meat in a 6 quart slow cooker, but adjust time as needed and cook until meat is no longer pink.
Drain fat, if desired, before using or freezing.
Portion meat out into freezer bags and freeze until ready to use.
