30 Dump and Go Freezer Meals for the CrockPot Slow Cooker

Introducing the...

"Dump and Go" Slow Cooker Freezer Meal Cookbook --- 

---  after answering lots and lots and lots of emails and giving lots and lots of cooking demonstrations it became crystal clear that readers wanted super easy Ready to Go meals they could simply dump right into their slow cooker and be done for the day.

Here you go!

This freezer meal cookbook has dump and go recipes -- 30 of them.

There are 10 Chicken recipes, 10 Beef recipes, and 10 Pork recipes -- all designed to be frozen BEFORE cooking -- simply load the ingredients from the store into zippered freezer bags, and then thaw overnight in the fridge.

In the morning, dump the contents of the bag into your slow cooker, push a button, and walk away.

It truly couldn't be easier.

What they say about this article

  1. Anonymous9/04/2017

    How many of the recipes include items made from tomato or corn? I am allergic to both and it is very difficult to find good slow cooker recipes that don't contain either. I can switch out tapioca starch for corn starch but can't use pre-made ingredients that contain corn. I also can't use canned cream soups. If I cut all of this out, how many recipes would remain in the book?

  2. Hi Chris, there aren't any canned cream of soups at all -- it's not something that I cook with. :-)

    I don't use cornstarch as a given in the recipes to thicken sauces -- since this is a dump and go I have tried super hard to limit steps for the included recipes.

    I just went through the shopping lists.

    For chicken, there is 1 jar of pasta sauce, for Lazy Chicken, but you could substitute a bbq sauce or something else that you prefer.

    In beef, there are two recipes that call for canned tomatoes, no corn

    In pork there is a recipe that asks for Ketchup.

    I hope this helps a bit!! I know how tricky it can be to have allergies in the house.

  3. What is the length of cook time for most of these? I am away from home 8-10 hours, so a 6 hour cook time turns to mush by the time we are ready to eat. This has been my biggest complaint with the "dump and go" meals.

  4. Hi there, great question and valid point! Beef and large hunks of meat take longer to cook. In general, be sure that your pot is 2/3 to 3/4 of the way full -- chicken will not take as long to cook as a pot roast does.
    BUT. It sounds like perhaps you need a new pot that is programmable? Here are my recommendations on the store page.
    Programmable slow cookers flip over to a "warm" setting -- so even once the cook time has elapsed (6 hours like in your example) the food won't continue to cook and "mush out" -- it'll just be kept hot and ready for up to an additional 20 hours until you get home at the end of a long work day.

    I hope this helps a bit!!
