crockpot cheeseburgers.

Ground beef.  It kind of perplexes me.  I hardly ever buy it, cause I don’t really know what to do with it, aside from making traditional beef tacos.  But, Ty came home a few weeks ago with about 15 pounds of frozen ground beef — his share from an auction.  So now I feel challenged to think of how to use it – aside from endless taco nights.

I think I found the answer:  these crockpot cheeseburgers.  Simple?  Yes.  Makes a lot?  Yes, so plenty to eat off of for dinner all week long.  Win!  Plus I love finding another go-to slow cooker recipe.


Crockpot Cheeseburgers

Recipe from How Sweet Eats

What you need:

  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 6 ounces cheddar, cut into small cubes
  • buns
  • other toppings as desired, such as lettuce, tomato, and extra cheese

What to do:

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add a drizzle of olive oil.  Put the diced sweet onion in the skillet and cook for several minutes, until it becomes translucent.  Then add the minced garlic.  Cook for an additional few minutes.  Add the ground beef, salt, and pepper, and cook the beef just until it starts to brown.  This will take about 5 minutes.  Transfer the ground beef into the slow cooker, and add the milk, ketchup, and mustard.  Stir in the cubed cheddar cheese.  Slow cook the beef on low for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.

I prepared the sandwiches as sliders on toasted King’s Hawaiian buns, with a heaping spoonful of the beef, a little extra cheddar cheese, and some lettuce.


I’m obsessed with King’s Hawaiian rolls.  They are the best, in my humble opinion.


What are your favorite ground beef recipes?  I’d love to know.
