Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew

Slow Cooker Poor Man’s Stew is made from scratch with ground beef to save money. A very hearty meal with very little effort or 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.

The inspiration for this meal came from my favorite old movie The Princess Bride. I made a stew similar to the one seen in the movie where Fezzic (Andre the Giant) hand fed Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin) a hearty stew trying to get him sober, so they could go find and save Westley.

What makes this meal budget friendly?

  • Fresh vegetables – I bought just what I needed for this recipe though you can buy large bags of potatoes and carrots and your price will go down.
  • Look for ground beef a roll, it’s almost always cheaper than beef in trays.
  • Dried spices are alway cheaper than fresh and last for years for other recipes as well.
  • I use water instead of broth in this recipe to cut down on the cost, though broth can be used if desired.
