Beef Stew in the Crock Pot VIDEO

Ever since I started planning ahead and freezing some of my favorite crock pot meals before cooking them it's been a total dinner game changer for me -- not to mention a huge time saver. It's literally changed my life.

This short video will show you how to prepare your favorite meals, like this Beef Stew in the Crock Pot, long ahead of time and freeze it so all you have to do whenever you are ready to eat is remove your labeled zipper bag from the freezer, dump the contents into the crock pot, and walk away. In hours, voila, dinner is served!

    The linked recipe calls for searing the beef, but the beef in the video appears to be uncooked? Should I sear the beef prior to putting it in the freezer bag?

    In the video you mention a post you made in January with other recipes to freeze. Can you please direct me to that post - I had trouble finding it.

    Thank you

      6-8 hours on low. Here is the written recipe without freezing! http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2012/01/11/beef-stew-in-the-crock-pot/

    Can you repost this recipe please? The video does not mirror the old recipe which I love so much. Wish I had printed it!

    I liked the idea of the prep ahead in the Ziplock bags. I was wondering have you ever considered the use of a slow cooker bag? I'm thinking it would save a lot of clean-up time if it worked.
