How to Cook Ground Beef in a Crockpot

Ground beef

Thanks to the slow cooker we can cook ground beef without grease splatters or watching the stove. Once cooked the beef it’s perfect for tacos, nachos, spaghetti, and other family favorite recipes.




  1. Place the ground beef into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Break up the meat with a large spoon and add the water. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 3 hours or low for 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Once the beef is cooked through, carefully pour the excess grease and liquid from the slow cooker dish. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the meat into airtight containers.
  3. Keep the cooked beef refrigerated and use within 3 days. To freeze, seal the desired amount in an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 months.
