I purchased 10lbs of
beef roast. It was a pretty good deal, a little less expensive than hamburger.
I spent some time and cut the meat up into bite size pieces. It took a bit a
time but if I had bought the meat already cut it would have doubled the cost.
So I figured it was worth my time to cut it up myself. I used 4lbs for
this crockpot meal and used the other 6lbs to
can beef stew.
This is what I started with..
And this is what I ended up with…
I used 4lbs of the meat to make 2 crockpot meals for the freezer. Here is the
Crockpot BBQ Beef for the freezer
4lbs beef stew meat,
cut into bite size pieces
1 1/2 cups bbq sauce (can be purchased or homemade)
1 1/2 cups jam or jelly, this can be peach jam, grape jelly, etc.. your choice
(in the pictures below I used a jar of my
home canned zucchini pineapple for the recipe but have made this same
recipe many, many times with jam and/or jelly)
I put 2lbs of cut up beef in 2 gallon size zip lock bags (4lbs total.. 2lbs in
I then added the bbq sauce…
And the zucchini pineapple (you can use jam or jelly instead as I mentioned in
the blog post linked above):
Seal and squish together and freeze (pretty easy stuff :)…
On cooking day… dump the bag of bbq beef into the crockpot and cook on low for
6 hours. Serve over brown rice or mashed potatoes.
