If there were a dish I could eat over and over again, this would be it



2 lbs quality ground beef

1 onion, finely diced

2 carrots, cut into chunks

4 russet potatoes, cubed

4 tablespoons robust tomato paste

1 tablespoon aromatic onion powder

1 tablespoon zesty garlic powder

1 teaspoon fragrant dried oregano

2 beef bouillon cubes

2 cups steaming hot water

A dash of Worcestershire sauce


Start by browning the ground beef in a pan. Once fully browned, gently shift it into the slow cooker.

Introduce the cubed potatoes and chunked carrots to the slow cooker.

Add the finely diced onion to the mix.

Over this medley, sprinkle the dried oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Separately, craft a sauce by melding the tomato paste with hot water. Incorporate the beef bouillon cubes and a dash of Worcestershire sauce, ensuring a smooth blend.

Pour this sauce into the slow cooker, enveloping all the ingredients.

Tenderly stir to ensure a harmonious melding of flavors. Top up with a tad bit of hot water if needed, ensuring everything's submerged.

Secure the lid, set your slow cooker on a low simmer, and let the magic unfurl over 7 hours.

Tip: For a richer texture, consider amalgamating 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with water to form a paste, stirring it into the stew during the last half hour.
