Growing up, my friends and I called this Alabama Stew because the recipe came from my Nanny - who lived in Alabama. Made perfect sense to us! :)
1 pound ground beef
large can petite diced tomatoes
can of green (sweet) peas
can of cream style corn
3-4 medium potatoes, diced
3-4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
can of tomato sauce (8 oz., I think)
salt and pepper to taste
Note: You can use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables instead of the peas and carrots. You will still need the cream corn for thickness.
Brown ground beef with onion; drain. Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cook on low all day (6-7 hours). Serve with cornbread (homemade, of course).
This can be done on the stove top - just cook slowly and stir often so it doesn't stick. The slow cooker is just so much easier.
