Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew is made from scratch with ground beef to save money.

Looking for a budget meal this week? I made this Poor Man’s Stew for $6.24 and it feeds 5 people! I put ground beef, russet potatoes, carrots, onions, a garlic clove (not pictured, I had this on hand), tomato paste, water and seasoning in my slow cooker simmered it all day to make this Hearty Poor Man’s Stew.


1 lb. ground beef browned and drained
1.5 lbs potatoes diced large
3 carrots sliced
1 onion diced
1 garlic clove minced (I had this on hand already)
6 oz. can tomato paste
2 cups of water
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried oregano

Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew


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 7 hours, without opening the lid during the cooking time.

Serve with buttered sandwich bread. Enjoy!
