Cowboy Casserole is a hearty, filling meat and potatoes dish that can be thrown together in the crockpot for a hands free dinner or in the pressure cooker for a fast dinner in under 30 minutes.

You’ll Need:
1 onion, diced
1 1/2 pound ground chuck or turkey, browned and seasoned with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder and drained
6 medium potatoes, washed and sliced
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed
1 Large can diced tomatoes mixed with 2 tablespoons flour or 1 can tomato soup
Salt and pepper and garlic to taste

Crockpot Directions:
Layer the bottom of the crockpot with diced onion, the add a layer of browned ground beef, sliced potatoes and beans. Spread tomatoes or soup over the top. Sprinkle with seasonings as desired. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours.

Digital Pressure cooker Directions:

Place the onions on the bottom, layer the ground meat and sliced potatoes. You can use whatever kind of tomatoes you like, we used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes, because that’s what we had on hand! Mix in 2 tablespoons of flour into the tomatoes, then pour it over the top. Set the pressure cooker for 12- 15 minutes. Seal and cook. Let it release naturally for about 5 minutes before manually releasing the pressure.

This recipe easily serves 4-6 and is great reheated in the morning and served with a fried egg on top.
