Slow Cooker Hobo Stew


I’ve been looking for new slow cooker recipes to try and found a recipe for Hobo Stew on Pinterest.   The original recipe called had a more tangy sauce (made with ketchup and vinegar) and I wanted something more hearty, so I made some substitutions.  The original recipe can be found here–> Hobo Stew

We served this with biscuits.  It was a hit with the whole family and one that will definitely be a “keeper” in your menu rotation!

  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced (I use the Yukon potatoes)
  • 1 can Golden Mushrooom soup
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 bag frozen peas

  1. Place diced carrots and potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Place frozen meatballs on top.
  3. Pour Golden Mushroom soup and beef broth over the top.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Add frozen peas 30 minutes before you are ready to serve.
  6. NOTE: This will be relatively thick if you use one can of beef broth. If you want a more “soupy” consistency, use two cans of beef broth.

Easy, low calorie Pineapple Angel Food Cake recipe. You only need two ingredients!
  • Angel Food Cake Mix
  • Can of crushed pineapple
  • Optional: fruit to drizzle over the top and Cool Whip

  1. Add the contents of the Angel Food Cake Mix to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add a can of crushed pineapple (do not drain).
  3. Stir until both ingredients are well mixed.
  4. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray (I used a bundt pan). The Angel Food Cake Box says that you do not need to grease the pan, but from my experience, if you’re using a bundt pan, it’s much easier to get the cake out if you spray it.
  5. Bake according to the directions on the box.
  6. Serve with fruit topping and/or Cool Whip (it’s also yummy without).

We will definitely be making it again!  This is a recipe you want to serve basically straight from the oven (give it a few minutes to cool so little fingers don’t get burned).  I’m hungry just thinking about it.
