I was looking for a recipe for a main dish that I could start in the crockpot and forget about it until it is time to eat tonight. I found this one and can hardly wait to try it!
6 peeled POTATOES; chopped into 1" pieces
2 pounds GROUND BEEF, PORK or TURKEY
2 teaspoons GARLIC (optional)
1 teaspoon CHILI POWDER (optional)
1 large ONION: finely chopped (The amount of onion for you to use is what you and your family prefer. A whole onion was way too much for our family so I cut it back to about 1/4th of an onion.)
1 1/2 cup KETCHUP (divided)
3/4 cup crushed butter-type crackers such as RITZ or SALTINE CRACKERS
2 teaspoons SALT
1/2 cup firmly packed BROWN SUGAR
1/2 teaspoon PREPARED YELLOW MUSTARD
Grease the inside of your crockpot (slow cooker).
Place peeled, cubed potatoes around the bottom of the pot.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the uncooked meat, garlic, chili powder, onion, 3/4 cup ketchup, cracker crumbs, eggs and salt. Mix well. Scoop into pot. I use my hands to do the mixing and the pressing so that I make sure everything is evenly combined.
In a small mixing bowl, stir the other 3/4 cup ketchup, brown sugar and mustard together. Spread this over the uncooked meat.
Cook on LOW for 6 to 10 hours.
