  • Spray crock pot with cooking spray.
  • Scrub about 3 medium russet potatoes and cut into small chunks, leaving the skin on. (If you cut the spuds into too large a size pieces, they will take too long to cook since everything else is basically done). This made one layer on the bottom of my 5-quart crock pot.
  • Season spuds with salt, pepper and garlic powder to your own taste.
  • Brown 1 pound of ground beef with 1/2 chopped onion; drain fat. Put on top of spuds.
  • Mix one can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup with 1 tsp beef concentrate flavor. Drain two 14 or 15 ounce can of cut green beans and put in slow cooker/crock pot.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, stirring a couple of times. Turn to low and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top of shepherd pie and cook for 30 minutes or so.

  1. This was so easy(probably because I didn't have to peel potatoes) and delicious! I took it to a church picnic and it dissapeared quickly. I used the potatoes and green beans from my garden. I thought it would be too salty with the salt and the beef boullion so I think I cut the salt back to 1/2 tsp. Also, I doubled it and it made a nice big crockpot full. Very flavorful!


<img src=> <br> <br>Hi my name is Andrea. I am a home schooling mom and love it! We have been without an oven for almost two years now. Due to cost at first, but then it became a great challenge to cook yummy meals without it.I have always enjoyed cooking, but over the last few years living in England and the ridiculously small kitchens it took a back seat. We do have a toaster oven, a pizza cooker, microwave, three skillets, an electric burner and a couple of crock pots. So most of the recipes will be crock pot ones and none use an oven or if they do just insert toaster oven lol. <br>I have started a OAM cooking day at our church and we are having a great time and Yummy meals!
