A Simple Frugal Meal: 4 Ingredient Beef, Potatoes, and Carrots – Dairy & Gluten Free

100_4437When we’re short on time, I love using the slow cooker.

When we are at the end of the month and relying on pantry ingredients for our meals until the start of the month, this meal is a winner because it only has 4 ingredients!

4 Ingredient Beef, Potatoes, and Carrots Meal

1 lb. beef round tenderized
4 large potatoes, peeled and diced
4 carrots, diced
1 to 2 TBSP homemade dry Italian Seasoning (I use this recipe)

Put the carrots and potatoes at the bottom of the slow cooker.

Lay the beef on top in one whole piece.

Sprinkle the beef with the dry Italian seasoning.

Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.  (There is no need to add any liquid.)

Serves 4 to 6.
