Dump and Go Crockpot Cowboy Stew Recipe

I think it's safe to say we are all in a committed relationship with our crockpots.  I know I am.  But one of the things that has annoyed me for years is the fact that there is often times a TON of prep work before you can dump and go.  For example, you need to cook your ground beef, sauté the veggies, make the sauce, etc.  Listen, if I'm using a slow cooker it's because I ain't got time to be messing with all that in the first place.  That is why I LOVE this Dump and Go Crockpot Cowboy Stew Recipe.  It is a TRUE dump and go kind of meal that everyone is going to love and I can't wait to share it with you.  

 Oh, and NO, NO YOU WILL NOT BE BROWNING THE GROUND BEEF FIRST and that's okay.  Anyway, without any further ado...


Q:  Are you sure I don't have to brown the ground beef first.  

A:  Yes.  I am 100% sure.  I mean you can if you want, but it is not nessecary.  

**Browning your meat only helps to one, develop flavors, and two give you the opportunity to remove any excess fat.  I didn't find this recipe lacking in any sort of flavor and because I used a lean ground beef there was not much fat at all.  Even after it sat in the fridge all night, there were only a few beads floating at the top.  Less than a beef stew or pot roast for sure.**

Q:  Do I have to use frozen potatoes, green peppers, and onions?  

A:  No, you can use fresh and it will not altar the time any.  I just like using them when I am pressed for time.  No chopping.  I also enjoy using the O'Brian potatoes because they have the peppers and onions already in them.  Saves on money that way too.
