I don’t know about you but I think at this point I am fully addicted to simple, delicious freezer meals. Even my husband, who first balked at the idea of freezer cooking and insisted he wouldn’t like any of the meals, has whole-heartedly embraced this freezer friendly lifestyle. It has not only saved us a ton of time and stress, but a ton of money as well.
Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!
Now that fall is upon us and school is in full swing, I love serving down-home comfort-food type meals, especially those that can be thrown in the slow cooker for a completely effortless meal. This slow-cooked pork “tenderloin” is a great alternative to beef or chicken and comes together in just minutes. (It is technically a pork loin roast, which lends itself better to slow cooking!) It can also be frozen ahead as part of a freezer cooking day! The recipe below makes two roasts, so if you only want one be sure to cut the ingredients in half.
Here is what you need:
2 (2 pound) pork loin roasts 2 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix 2 cups chicken broth 2 cups red wine 1 large onion, chopped 6 cloves garlic, minced 3 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce freshly ground black pepper to taste
Step 1: Chop onion and mince garlic.
Step 2: Whisk together soup mix, chicken broth, wine, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic and black pepper.
Step 3: Label bags; place one 2 lb pork tenderloin in each bag and divide marinade evenly among bags. Then freeze.
Step 4: Thaw meat; add carrots and potatoes and cook in crock pot on low for 4-5 hours.
