You can assemble everything except the beer and beef stock and place in a freezer baggie in the freezer, and pull out the morning you want to cook. Just add the beer and beef stock and you have a hearty beef stew ready and waiting when you get home from work!

Beer & Beef Slow-Cooker Stew
2 lbs. stew beef
2 T olive oil
2 T butter
2 celery stalks chopped
2 large carrots chopped
1 lb. potatoes chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
2 bay leaves
1 T parsley
1 cup dark beer
1 cup beef stock
1 can tomatoes with green chilis (Like Rotel)
2 t salt
1 t pepper

Season beef with salt & pepper. Place all ingredients in large freezer bag except beer and beef stock.

When ready, place stew mixture in crockpot, add beer and beef stock and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I have to try this and other freezer meals for those nights I don't want to cook. It happens more in the Spring?Summer when I am out more. And the crockpot is perfect for not heating up the kitchen.

Amen! This is the time of the year when I want to spend more time outdoors and less inside cooking like you enjoy doing in the winter when it is cold and dreary, so I will often take a weekend, buy in bulk (saving money!!!) and prep for the entire day and fill the freezer with things I can just pop out and throw in the slowcooker. I found doing this we were MUCH less likely to fall into that "lets get something on the way home for dinner" and much more likely to "enjoy the pool time for an hour vs cooking dinner".

Much easier to have cleaned up the once vs each meal prep too!!!
