So remember how Laura and I got together a few months ago and made a bunch of freezer meals?
I promised that I would report back about how they survived freezing, thawing and cooking. ..
I thawed this one in the fridge and then threw it in the crockpot. Overall, super easy to prepare – you can’t beat dumping dinner into the crockpot.
I had made this one before – just never froze it. . . and I’m happy to say it held up well. **The directions call for adding a can of diet pop. I didn’t freeze that – just added it when I was making it.
Overall grade for freezer meal = A. It was a great meal, easy to prepare, and made dinner a breeze.
So this one was supposed to be a crockpot meal, but Laura made it before me and said that cooking in the crockpot made the meat super tough. So, I just thawed and made mine in the skillet. The beef was good, but the broccoli was overcooked. I don’t think it was the best to freeze the broccoli. If I made this again, I would just buy fresh broccoli to go with it.
Overall grade for freezer meal = B. It was an ok meal, easy to prepare, but wasn’t my favorite.
Scott liked it. . .
I’ve made this one before. . . and it turned out much better last time. I don’t think this one was the best for freezing. The sauce thinned out and separated. Bummer. Thankfully, it wasn’t anything that extra BBQ couldn’t fix. . . but I wouldn’t make this one as a freezer meal again. Regular crockpot meal = yes, because it’s delicious.
Overall grade for freezer meal = C. It wasn’t a great freezer meal. It was still edible with lots of BBQ sauce. BUT, this one is still on my crockpot meal rotation.
Have you made any good freezer/crockpot meals lately?? Please share your link!
Linking up with Becky for TYT = because meal planning/freezer meals is one of the best ways to treat your future self.
