I’ve always loved the idea of using a slow cooker. But I got into a bad relationship with slow cookers. Here’s how it would go: I’d buy a slow cooker. I wouldn’t use it all and start to resent all the space it was taking up in my tiny kitchen. And then, in an enthusiastic decluttering sweep, I would donate it. But, alas, many months later I would fall back in love with the idea of slow cooking. And the whole cycle would start again.
I’m happy to report that I have finally broken the cycle of slow cooker buying/donating madness. Yup- I’m the proud owner of a regularly used slow cooker.
I realized that the reason I never used my slow cooker is because this time-saving device ironically took too much time to use. I just didn’t have time or patience to chop all those darn veggies and cube the meat and fuss around at 7:30 in the morning before leaving the house.
And then I had my eureka moment: Freezer bag slow cooker meals. (How did I live without these before?) Let me show you how easy these are to make.
1. Label an XL Ziploc freezer bag with a permanent marker
with recipe name and cooking instructions.
2. Fill it with good stuff. (Meat, veggies, sauce, spices, etc.)
3. Lay the freezer bag flat in your freezer. Freeze
4. Take it out the night before you need it and thaw overnight.
In the morning, empty the freezer bag contents into your slow cooker.
5. Add any extra ingredients (such as canned tomatoes).
6. Stir to combine.
7. Put lid on slow cooker and cook, following cooking directions (ie. Low for 7-8 hours)
8. Serve and garnish. Bon appétit!
