Prepping freezer meals is such a time saver and in the summer it is life-changing. In the summer months, we tend to get off schedule more with fewer routines in place, and that is when popping into the grocery store or fast-food restaurant happens. If you take a little time once a month, to prep 15-20 freezer meals, you can not only save time but also money!
Most of the freezer meals we prep for the summer are either slow cooker/instant pot friendly or BBQ friendly. This pork recipe is super easy and can be prepared in the Instant Pot / Slow cooker if a roast, or on the BBQ as well, if chops.
Some other freezer meal favourites of ours are:
- Orange Chicken
- Honey Garlic Chicken
