~Stay Out of The Kitchen This Sunday.~

After a long work week, we have to admit – spending time in the kitchen cooking is the last thing we wanna do.

With Saint Patrick’s Day just around the corner, in the midst of all the toasts and green clothing, why not celebrate the night with a classic hearty Irish Beer Stew?  This crowd-pleasing dish is not only mouth wateringly delicious but also incredibly easy to make, especially with the help of our Flash-Frozen quick-thaw stew meat. 

This is why slow cooker meals have become so popular! Your slow cooker does most of the work, and you reap the rewards! (And maybe you can find the time to catch up with some other things you’d rather be doing this weekend!) Win, win!

So, let’s spring forward  into a cozy recipe that’s sure to bring the family around for seconds. Perfect for a lazy Sunday or any weeknight! Cheers to another Farm-to-Freezer recipe for the weekly rotation: (Plus, yummy leftovers!)
