Crockpot Make Ahead Ground Beef

SERVES 8  |  ACTIVE TIME 5 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 2 Hours 5 Min

2 pounds lean ground beef (I use 93% lean)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt


Combine ingredients in a crock pot. Stir and combine. Cook on high 2-3 hours or low 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain if necessary.

Divide into portions, place in freezer safe resealable zip top bags. Freeze for several months.

COOK'S NOTES:  Cook up to 5 pounds at a time, adjust cooking time as necessary. I divide in half and freeze in 1 pound (pre-cook weight) portions, as that is the most common amount in the recipes I use.

I cook 2 pounds in a 2 quart crockpot.
