Freezer Cooking: Slow Cooker Beef Stew
I thought I would report back on another freezer cooking success with this Slow Cooker Beef Stew.
I have to mention that I sure wish I knew what freezer cooking was when I was working full time in finance and not cooking daily! This would of been a life saver. For me, I’m a work at home mom and dinner time is typically a challenge simply because that is when the baby is fussy and most times I am just tired!
Now, to think you could take one day and freeze enough meals for a month and then all you would have to do at dinner time is pop them in the oven to warm up or in the mornings just dump your freezer bag of ingredients into a slow cooker? I’m sold!
This freezer meal is so simple because I just prepped the ingredients and froze them in a freezer safe storage bag. Then, when I was ready to cook this meal, I added 2 cups of water to it and poured all the ingredients out of the bag and into the slow cooker.
The smell of stew drifted through the air and 8 hours later we had dinner!
- 2 Lbs Stew Meat
- 16 oz Package of Baby Carrots
- 3 Potatoes, Halved
- 1 14.5oz Can of Beef Broth
- 1 Package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 2 Cups Water
Spray a 4-5 quart slow cooker with non stick spray, then place all ingredients in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Note: I use enough water to cover the meat and veggies.
Freezer Cooking Instructions: Place all ingredients in a freezer safe storage bag except for water. Once you are ready to cook, follow the above instructions and add the water. The water should cover the veggies and meat.
Enjoy this stew on a cold, wintry day!
