I'm here today to fulfill my promise for a review of the frozen crockpot dinners I posted about before I had KJ. The whole reason for making these bad boys, is that I figured I wouldn't want to cook immediately after Kylie was born, but would likely still want homemade meals. Enter: easy meals. Below you will find reviews of all of the recipes I posted about in September.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
First, you should know that it took me about 2 hours to cut and prepare all of the meals. One general rule of thumb that I decided I will do in the future is double the meat. There is so much juice and so little meat (primarily in the chicken meals). Here are my thoughts:
I LOVED the Orange Chicken. This one took the most time to prepare, but was one of my favorites. Worth the extra time.
Teriyaki Chicken: This one was the best out of all of them. Hands down. It was sweet and delicious and was amazing over brown rice.
BBQ chicken: This one was OK. Not memorable really. Know that I enjoyed it, but it wasn't anything to write home about.
Vegetable beef soup. I loved this one. The texture of the veggies and the meat is perfect!
I wasn't a huge fan of the Goulash/Beef Stew the first time I made it, but the second time I added a cup of water and a Knorr Homestyle Stock cup (totally didn't follow the package instructions) and an extra cup of sour cream at the end and it was awesome. I would maybe recommend waiting to put the stock and water in until the day you make it.
Overall, these meals, as promised, were delicious, convenient, and oh so easy.
Let me know if you give them a try or have any recommendations of other frozen meals!!
