Have you seen these Tyson roasts in the meat section of the grocery? They cost around $12 and they are so worth it. I’ve tried both the beef roast and pork roast and I’ve seen that they sell beef stew, but I haven’t tried that yet.
It takes about 2 minutes to have dinner in the crockpot. Open the meat and put it in the pot. Open the veggies and toss them in on top. Mix the seasoning packet with 1 cup of water and pour it in.
I like to turn the broth into gravy. Put a couple spoons of flour in a container with a tight fitting lid. Add some water and shake the daylights out of it. You want it to be thick, but well combined and pourable. Whisk the thickening into the broth that is still in the crockpot and your gravy is done.
Dinner for the 6 of us for about $2 per person. Faster than fast food and better too. (Use a crockpot liner to speed the cleanup process.)
