Crockpot Ground Beef Recipes

Let’s start with how to make Crockpot ground beef. It is a great tip to have in your back pocket when you’re busy around the house.

Precook it and throw it into a casserole or wad it up into little palm sized balls for a bowl of comfort food like Crockpot meatballs and gravy any which way is great.

FIRST – You should sign up for my free newsletter so you get new posts emailed to you twice a week and never miss out on anything! Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. If you just want to serve a few appetizers you should get this one that sit side by side one another.
  3. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉


Slow Cooker Ground Beef Recipes

We do A LOT of crock pot recipes here at The Typical Mom because they are easy to throw together in the morning, and everyone here seems to enjoy them. I especially appreciate them on days when I know we are going to be gone most of the day and exhausted when we get back.

On Tuesdays we always think tacos!! Not hard to do in this baby either and over time the meat soaks up all that goodness. Then pair your slow cooker taco meat with all the fixings and believe me the kiddos will get a kick out of it.

Speaking of kiddos they always want something fun, easy to pick up and messy is another plus. With that said our slow cooker sloppy joes is always a huge hit with mine. Then let’s look at our favorite crockpot hamburger casserole next!

It takes a bit of pressure off of me as we both work full time and I just don’t have the time to spend an hour or more cooking with our busy schedules. YET we want a feel good comfort meal when we all get home. Something like our Goulash in the Crock-pot just makes us smile….

During the summer crockpot meals are the best because who wants to heat up their house turning on the oven when it’s over 100 outside. Instead, stoak up this pot, brown your meat and throw in a few other ingredients to let it steep all day together. Instead of beef you can use ground Crockpot Sausage Recipes the same way too.

I have several but this is my favorite one. I also make a lot of Instant Pot recipes so you can check those out as well when meal planning.

Here are a few things to remember when cooking any ground beef recipes in your slow cooker:

  1. You need to brown ground beef before adding it to your pot.
  2. Just add it to a pan on your stovetop on medium high heat and cook just until the outsides are no longer pink.
  3. Then add to your crockpot with your diced tomatoes, beef broth or other ingredients
  4. Follow instructions on your recipe to make all sort of ground beef casseroles and turn on to cook for the day

Yes, pre cooking your beef is a necessary step when it’s slow cooked but will only take a few minutes. This is what I do when making our ever popular 5 ingredient crockpot chili.

This is probably one of our most popular slow cooker hamburger recipes because it is so simple to make, cheap, and kids absolutely love it.

Top each bowl with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese and OH MY goodness is this a killer crockpot dinner idea.

Total comfort food for sure. Kinda’ like a crockpot chili mac!

Our number one recipe and first one made here on our site was this dump 5 ingredient chili that is great as is, put inside baked potatoes or we love to put it on top a bed of rice with cheese on top.

We probably make this once a week because it feeds everyone and is super cheap to make….healthy too!
