Ground Beef and Green Beans (Slow Cooker)


Recently I was in the mood for something similar to my slow cooker beef and green beans recipe, but I had ground beef to use instead of a chuck roast.  I also didn’t want it to be as saucy, and since my husband was out of town, it was going to include mushrooms.

I used frozen green beans and canned tomatoes since that’s my best option this time of year, but fresh would probably work too. I loved the result, and served by itself it’s a great low-carb meal.  Feel free to serve it with rice or gluten free bread.

    Great recipe! Whole family loved it. I looked for a recipe for green beans and ground meat and came across this one. I was ready to cook dinner so I actually cooked this on the stove top. I also used fresh green beans and ground turkey-still had great flavor! Next time will cook it in the slow cooker. Thank you for helping me find a recipe I can put on our favorite go to’s!
