This recipe came from Real Simple. I set it up as a slow cooker freezer meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4cup tomato paste
  • 2tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1pound carrots—peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces, and halved lengthwise if thick
  • 1pound baby potatoes (about 15)
  • 1/2 bag of frozen white pearl onions
  • 2stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 13-pound beef chuck roast
  • salt and black pepper

Directions

  1. mix together the tomato paste, cornstarch, and 1 cup water.
  2. Add the carrots, potatoes, onion, and celery. and toss to combine.
  3. Season the beef with 1½ teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper and set on top of the vegetables.
  4. Cover and cook until tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  5. Serve with the vegetables and cooking liquid.

AJ: Did not eat the meat, but ate every bite of onion and vegetable. He dunked bread in the broth, which he NEVER does…so he must have really liked it. 

Mommy:I LOVED this soup, but now have too much left over.

Daddy: Took it for lunch, hope he likes it.

*****As you have seen from my recipes, not all the items are organic. While I still believe organic and NON-GMO is the best for us, it really ate up all our money. I still buy mostly organic, but have to make tough choices to buy some foods that are not organic. I do see the difference with certain reactions, but now have the money for other important items. It’s really sad that the food industry is treating us all like science experiments and creating crap for us to eat. In the end shopping at Stop and Shop, buying their organic foods, and earning gas points is vital.

Yes, there are ways to save, but with a tiny apartment, limited storage space, and limited gardening areas I can not do as much as I wanted. Do not take this as we are eating unhealthy foods. We are still eating nutrition packed foods and I still believe in probiotics, essential oils, and homeopathic treatments first over typical drugs.*****
