This is wonderful for a “meat and potatoes” kind of meal. Perfect for those cold winter nights. Serve with hot baked rolls or biscuits for the perfect filling meal.

My daughter had two friends over tonight and if I get the approval of 3 12 year olds it surely has to be good!

Calorie count: 870 (based on the food brands I used) Read your labels for accurate calorie counts. Follow package serving size for accurate counting of calories. I measure everything per plate/bowl based on serving sizes listed on all packages/containers to determine calories.

What you will need:
1 LB Ground Beef
1 Onion
5-6 Potatoes
1 Can Corn
2 full drinking cups of HOT water
Flour
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Salt
Chicken Bouillon

How to:
Brown ground beef on stove top.
c2a4f6d1-ef94-4d1c-9282-01594b0e3342
While ground beef is cooking place 3 chicken bouillon cups in a full cup of HOT water. I don’t measure my water. I just use 2 full drinking cup.
Once all ground beef is browned and cooked thoroughly remove all ground beef from skillet except for about 2 tablespoons. Leave grease in skillet.
Pour about 1/4 cup of flour into skillet. Again I don’t measure my flour just judge it by what it looks like. More flour the thicker your gravy will be. The less flour the more watery the gravy will be.
Turn your heat up to med-high.
Shake some salt and pepper over flour to taste. Take a fork and mix flour into grease quickly until all flour is a brown color and just starts to sizzle. Not to long or you will burn the flour.
a4096c5d-1a98-4ea2-b52e-c897b7c51921
Take your drinking glass of with bouillon into skillet with heat still at med-high.
d0d54990-0a85-4fe9-b7ff-4f57f718821f
Use your fork to continually mix/stir scrap the bottom of the pan to ensure nothing is sticking.
At same time make sure your bouillon cubes are dissolved if not use fork and crush them and break them up.
Pour second cup of water into skillet still stirring/mixing.
Turn heat up to almost high.
Let it boil for a few minutes.
61b49d2a-2b93-4ba4-b22b-6ecf886cd1c8
It will begin to thicken quickly with high heat. Stir always so it doesn’t burn on the bottom of the skillet.
Once gravy has reached your desired thickness remove from heat.

Peel and chunk cut your potatoes. Bigger chunks the better.
Quarter your onion.
Turn crock pot on high.
Add about 1/4 inch of gravy to the bottom of crock pot.
144f625f-ac34-47db-bc68-3c5ea235bf64
Then add browned ground beef, potatoes, corn, onions.
Shake in some garlic salt, salt, and pepper to taste.
Stir to incorporate all together.

Cook on high 5-6 hours or until potatoes are tender.
