CrockTober Fest – Freezer Meals

I'm passing out all my secrets in this post. I love my crockpot. I believe I could use it every day. And the best combination to go with my crockpot is Freezer Meals. This is how it works. 

Head to the store and grab everything you need for these 5 recipes below including the Ziplock bags. When you get home instead of unloading them into your fridge, freezer, cupboard, or shelves. Pack each recipe in a Ziplock bag and Voila. You now have 5 meals to add to your freezer and then to the crockpot. All the work is done, right after the store. 

Cashew Chicken:

  • 2-3 pounds chicken breast (depending on how much chicken you want)
  • 1 tsp pepper

  • ½ c apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ c ketchup
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ c cashews (add when ready to serve)
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (coconut or olive, to grease the slow cooker)

Add all ingredients to a Ziplock bag or freezer container. Write on bag: thaw slightly and put in slow cooker on low 4-6 hours. Add cashews and serve.

Chicken Balsamic

  • 3 pounds chicken breasts
  • 28 oz tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic diced
  • ¾ c balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons oil (coconut or olive)

  • ½ c salsa
  • ¼ c almond butter
  • 3 T lime juice
  • 3 T coconut aminos

Add all ingredients to a Ziplock bag or freezer container. Write on bag: thaw slightly, cook on low 6-8 hours.

Italian Sausage

  • 2 pounds Italian sausage links
  • 2 large green peppers
  • 2 onions
  • 4 c diced tomatoes
  • 1 T onion powder
  • 1 T garlic powder

Add all ingredients to a Ziplock bag or freezer container. Write on bag: Cook on low 6 hours.

*This recipe is great on top of a spaghetti squash!

Beef Stew

  • 2 pounds beef stew meat or deer meat
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 ½ c tomato juice
  • 4 cloves garlic diced
  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1 bunch celery chopped
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a ziplock bag or freezer container. Write on bag: add 3-4 sweet potatoes, cubed (optional) and cook on low 8-9 hours.

You have my secret to fast meal prep. Great food in a crockpot. 

Enjoy Good Food,

P.S. One thing I have found, is many times I will give these meals away to friends who need a quick meal due to a family issue or a personal challenge. They love it like I do. They can make it when they need it most.
