Meatball Stew

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 8-10 cups




  • Cube the potato, pieces should be smaller than dice size. (Remember, this is a stew, so it's easier to eat if all the bits fit on your spoon!).
  • Slice the carrots. I use a bag of baby carrots instead of 2 large ones. Makes for nice little bits.
  • Dice the onion.
  • Place all the vegetables in a 2.5 quart (or larger) oven safe crock (with lid). Leave about 2 inches of space to the top.
  • Roll ground beef into balls. They should be no bigger than 3/4 inches in diameter about thumbnail size).
  • Gently put the meatballs on top of the veggies to avoid crushing them.
  • Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Follow instructions on the gravy packets to make 3 cups of gravy.
  • When the gravy is done, stir in some Season All to taste (I use ~2 tsp) & pour it slowly into the crock. Make sure all the meatballs are covered.
  • Cover with lid and bake for 1-1.5 hours. Open and gently stir occasionally.
  • You may want to put a piece of foil (or foil covered cookie sheet) on the rack below, as this tends to drip over once it begins to boil.
