This may look like mush or something not so appealing in the pictures. But let me tell you it's AMAZING, easy and smells so good while it cooks. 

Prep took 10 minutes total. Cook time 5 hours. 
Since you use ground beef this whole meal for 4 with the bread cost $9. There's only 2 of us so we might have leftovers. 
(we did, enough for 2 more sandwiches)

Cut up the veggies throw them in the crock pot.
One Onion, One Bell Pepper, 1 cup of Mushrooms (optional)
At the same time ground one pound beef with one clove of garlic and salt and pepper to taste. 
Leave the chunks of ground beef on the bigger side. 
(picture of beef not included till it's in the crock pot, I forgot to take one)
Toss veggies with 2 Tablespoons of flour
Add 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire (had on hand) and one can of French Onion Soup
to the veggie mixture
Add the cooked ground beef and garlic mixture and toss around. 
Close up your crock pot. 
Set your crock pot to Low for 5 hours and wait for your house to start smelling AMAZING
At the last 5 minutes of cook time. I took the lid off my crock pot, added the 2 cups of cheese and let it melt into the mixture. You could get away with cooking for 4 hours if needed. Around the 4 hour mark I took the lid off to taste, it was ready to be served, but we weren't ready for dinner. 
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 large (or 2 small) onions slivered
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 1½ cups thickly sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 can low sodium condensed French Onion soup (or beef broth if you can't find French Onion)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups shredded provolone or mozzarella (or a combination)
  • Cheese Wiz (Optional) 
  1. Brown ground beef and garlic in a pan. Try not to break the beef up too much, you want to have the pieces a good size. Drain any fat.
  2. Place beef, onions, pepper and mushrooms (if using) into a slow cooker. Toss with flour and pepper to taste. ( I added the salt & pepper to my beef mixture instead)
  3. Pour soup & Worcestershire sauce over top of mixture and cook on low 4-5 hours.
  4. Remove lid, sprinkle with cheese and replace lid for a few minutes until it melts.
  5. Serve on rolls or toss with pasta (as you can see I served mine open faced and ate with a fork, it was to messy to pick up. I also added a little bit of cheese whiz for extra cheesy taste. Optional. I just happened to have some so I tired it. 

Simple to make, very little prep and a wonderful meal waiting for you when you get home.
