Slow-Cooker Beef and Potato Stew

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"I used vegetables from the farmers market and just started creating this delicious and spicy stew! It's very easy to put together and very tasty! If you like fresh garlic you can add 2 cloves to meat while browning. For a less-spicy option, remove jalapeno seeds."

  1. Crumble ground beef into a skillet over medium heat; season with garlic salt and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir the ground beef until completely browned, breaking into small pieces as you stir, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain as much grease from the beef as possible.
  2. Combine water, beef broth, corn, potatoes, sliced jalapeno peppers, onion, onion powder, and black pepper in a slow cooker; add drained ground beef. Cook on High until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.

I made this recipe but I changed a lot of things from the original recipe. The recipe says 1 pound of ground beef, but the photo shows beef chunks or stew beef so I got a pound of stew beef. The...

I concur with others who said it was bland - I had to add salt and pepper. Next time I would also add carrots to the ingredients to take away the bland look of the stew. I should also note tha...

Too many jalapenos. I am a fan of spicy food but this is practically inedible even if you remove the seeds. Even looking past the jalapeno problem the food was pretty bland, it needed more seaso...
