1Crumble the ground meat into the slow cooker. Pour in the broth or water and add the seasoning of choice. Stir. Cook on HIGH for approximately 3 hours, checking at the second hour to see how well the meat is cooking. The meat will form into a meatloaf-type shape after about 2 hours of cooking. I use a potato masher to break the meat up into small pieces. I cooked the meat for 3 hours total on HIGH the whole time however each slow cooker has its own personality. You may need to lower the temperature to LOW on or around the end of the second hour.
2To serve strain the meat in a colander. Or, we served the meat straight from the slow cooker using a slotted spoon.
3TIP: If desired, you can skip the seasoning and cook the beef plain. Once it had cooked thoroughly, strain and transfer to a storage container to cool. You can divide up the beef into increments (for future meals) and freeze. Many uses!
