Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to share a super easy (but delicious) recipe with you.
We have a busy week ahead and eating a home-cooked meal each evening helps us unwind and relax. But some days, it's hard to spend extra time (that I don't have) preparing a home-cooked meal. That's where freezer and slow cooker meals come in! They are convenient, affordable and easy!
Here's one recipe that our family enjoys; and it's only four ingredients (WhooHoo)!
Slow Cooker Beef Tips**
1.5 lbs Beef Tips/Stewed Meat
1 Can Cream of Mushroom
1 Can of Beef Broth
1 Pkg. of Beef Onion Soup Mix
Directions: Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and stir. Cook on low for 6 hours. THAT'S IT!!
This serves our family of 4 with some leftovers.
We enjoy the beef tips over rice or mashed potatoes. Add a veggie and a salad. And your good to go!
Here's a few tips:
1) Beef tips can be expensive if not on sale. If you find a good deal, buy several packs and put together some freezer meals. Put all in ingredients into a gallon freezer bag and freeze flat. You will save money and have a few meals in your freezer for a rainy day.
2) You can cook these on high (for 3 hours), but I've found them to not be as tender.
3) Slow Cooker liners are your friend! They make for a quick clean-up.
What are some of your "go-to" meals? Have you done any freezer cooking?
