Cinnamon Sweet Potato Stew

Today we had an amazing day at a petting farm in Maryland with my sister’s family.  When we got home, I was starving and very very happy that I had put this delicious meal in the crockpot before we left.  This meal is simple, but it is really good.  The combination of cinnamon, beef, and sweet potatoes is fantastic!


Cinnamon Sweet Potato Stew


1 pound ground beef

3-4 sweet potatoes, chopped

2 yellow onions, chopped

5 carrots, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Brown ground beef and put in crockpot.
  • Add all other ingredients to crockpot.
  • Cook on low for 7 hours.
  • Enjoy!


A comment on crockpots – our Aunt Carole got me a crockpot a few years ago (THANK YOU!) that I can program.  I set the temperature and the time, and at the end of the cooking time, it automatically goes down to “warm.”  It is so wonderful for a day when you’re not at home and can’t get back at the exact end of the cooking time.  If you don’t have a crockpot you can program, I definitely think it would be worth buying, or putting it on a wish list!
