Make 2 Freezer Meals in 20 Minutes

Tonight, I decided to turn it up a notch and make not one, but TWO freezer meals-and to make things interesting, I wanted to see how fast I could prepare them.

For both of my meals tonight, I made Pork Roast with carrots, potatoes, & celery (super duper easy!) and Beef Minestrone.

I figured these would be pretty easy to thaw and dump into my crockpot when the time comes. I worked at a fast pace and managed to get both meals prepared and stuffed into the freezer within 20 minutes. Now please take note that I don’t cook these before I freeze them. I simply prepare them (cut ingredients, etc) and then freeze them in Ziplock gallon bags.

Here are the recipes for both:

Pork Roast with veggies:
1 Pork Roast
1 Celery Stalk (sliced)
2 cups baby carrots (sliced)
1 potato (cubed)
1 can chicken broth
Combine alll ingredients into a one gallon ziplock bag and freeze. Upon thawing for use, place ingredients into the crockpot on hi for 5-6 hours. Season as needed.

Beef Minestrone
1lb. Ground Beef
1 zucchini
half an onion
1 bag frozen green beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 container of vegetable stock
1 can stewed tomatoes
Throw ingredients into the ziplock bag and store for freezing. Upon thawing, pour into crockpot and cook for 4 hours on highest setting. Season to taste.
