I do have some dinners I can make for my family of 9 for $20.00, which is about $2.22 per person. The crockpot is great for days I will not be home until later and I have time in the morning to prepare our meal. My beef stew is one of the kids favorites.
This recipe is so easy, nutritious, cheap, and tastes great thanks to Crock*Pot Hearty Beef Stew Seasoning Mix.
It requires 2 lbs of stewing beef and if it’s on sale you are under 10 dollars on your meat purchase. You then add 5 cups of vegetables, your choice. I use potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, and the season packet. The stew cooks for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. I get a loaf of French bread and put together a Caesar salad and I am done. This meal is economical and hearty and great for a large family or when company is coming.
