Slow Cooker SHIPWRECK CASSEROLE ~ Ground Beef Crockpot Recipe

It’s a slow-cooker day and tonight we will be having a shipwreck casserole. This is a great way to use vegetables. I’m Tess and I will show you how to make this shipwreck casserole in the crock pot. I really enjoy making this shipwreck casserole. It’s loaded with layer upon layer of textures… a definite shipwreck of flavors. Now is a great time to use those vegetables in the refrigerator. Most of these ingredients you probably already have on hand. The key to this recipe is placing the ingredients in layers and, in the order that I have listed in the recipe. As it cooks, each ingredient releases their flavors into the casserole. You want to oil or spray the inside of your slow-cooker. On the bottom I’m placing some sliced onions. Then a layer of sliced potatoes. I’m using russet potatoes and I’ve left the skins on. I have some carrots and celery I need to use. Next is the ground beef. I have about a pound here and I’m also going to season the top with some salt, black pepper, garlic and onion powder. Try to choose a lean beef as this is going in raw. This is one cup of rinsed and drained white rice. And finally, this is a large can of tomato sauce. You can also use crushed or diced tomatoes. And that’s it! Cover and cook on high for four hours or on the low setting for seven to eight hours. It’s been four hours. I’m turning my heat off and letting that set for 15 minutes before digging in. As you can see there is a lot of food and flavors here. This shipwreck casserole will feed a hungry crowd. Of course, you can use the vegetables that you like. I really enjoy using cabbage, corn or peas. You can taste the individual layers and they also produce a delicious sauce to spoon over the top. This casserole really reheats well and is one of those dishes that seems to taste better the next day. I hope you give this slow cooker shipwreck casserole a try and enjoy.

    Youre the queen of cooking comfort meals

  21. Suzanne Steed says:

    I believe the vegetables sauteed first would have helped with the thin watery juice at the bottom. If it began to dry out, could always add a tad bit of stock. IMO.
    Much respect.

  22. Apple Berries says:

    i love you Tess, for posting this recipe/dish. My mom used to make this in a deep casserole dish, in the oven, when I was a kid (no crockpots back then)….i started making it in my Crockpot, back in the 70s…Heck, I still make this in the colder months…it's real Comfort Food..

  28. Valerie Bailey says:

    I’m on a little crockpot kick lately…nice to have a hot meal in Florida without the oven heating up the house. Made this Shipwreck casserole for dinner this past Saturday and my family loved it. Made your crockpot Swiss steak as well. Both are keepers and family pleasers👏🏻👌🏻💪🏻 Thank you for sharing!💝
