Pork or Beef Stew Freezer Kits

Put meat in freezer bag.  Add the flour, salt and pepper, then seal the bag and shake to mix up.  Add all the remaining ingredients except the potatoes and the chicken broth.  (I used garlic powder instead of the clove.)  Mix this up and seal the bag.

On the bag, write instructions (or put them on a piece of tape or a label to put on the bag).
"Add 1 can (1-1/2 cups) of chicken broth and 5 diced potatoes.  Cover; cook on Low 10-12 hours (High 4-6 hours). Stir stew thoroughly before serving."

Put this bag in the freezer.  It does not have to be thawed before cooking, just thawed sufficiently to get the mixture out of the bag.  If it is still frozen, cooking time may be an hour longer.

I am thinking that a couple of cans of potatoes might work so that you don’t have to dice potatoes at the last minute.

After trying this once, make lots of these kits at the same time and freeze them.  This is also handy when needing to take a meal to someone.  You can take them the kit even so they can make it at their convenience.
