One-Pot Recipes - Vegetable Beef Casserole

Vegetable Beef Casserole RecipeHave little time to cook?  Much less time to clean up?  Tired of some of those tried and true crock-pot recipes?  This little cookbook has some marvelous recipes.  Here is just one from the selection of Oven Entrees:

Vegetable Beef Casserole

3 med unpeeled potatoes, sliced
3 med carrots, sliced
3 celery ribs, sliced
2 c fresh or frozen green beans
1 med onion, chopped
1 lb lean ground beef
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
4 med tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 c (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

In a 3-qt. casserole, layer half of the potatoes, carrots, celery, green beans and onion.   Crumble half of the uncooked beef over vegetables.  Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp each of thyme, salt and pepper.  Repeat layers.  Top with tomatoes.  Cover and bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees F; bake about 1 hour longer or until vegetables are tender and meat is no longer pink.  Sprinkle with cheese; cover and let stand until cheese is melted. 
Makes 6-8 servings

  1. That looks absolutely delicious, and like a casserole even my grandkids would like. Thanks for the recipe. And being from Wisconsin, I can honestly say that almost everything is better with CHEESE on it. :-)
