Charla, the Jambalaya recipe you linked looks like the one I ate. I'll try it. Trader Joes sells the kind of sausage needed for that recipe so I'll add it to my shopping list.

The Asian Beef recipe shared by Bananacake looks like a good start so I think I'll use that one and make sure there is more sauce because I would like to serve it over rice.

I was able to refill my freezer meal stock a little bit this week:

  • 2 Italian beef
  • 3 Spaghetti Bolognese sauces
  • 1 Sesame chicken
  • 1 Chicken taco
  • 1 Beef tips (probably more of a lunch-size than dinner)

This is a recipe that can be made in the Instant Pot or Crockpot. You slide it under the broiler briefly if you want it crispier. I skipd that step because I'm tired. https://www.gimmesomeoven.com/instan...omment-1577735

Here's a list of freezer crockpot recipes

https://whoneedsacape.com/2012/11/cr...eezer-cooking/

Apparently, you can assemble 40 freezer meals in 4 hours, according to this plan. Never tried it, though. Too overwhelming.

I've tried a few of these recipes. They were good but not great. That's my opinion of almost every crockpot meal that's not soup, though. It's not my favorite cooking method but it's a lifesaver on busy days.

I wonder if I could make them in prueshercooker.

I got rid of my crockpot because I didn't think anything made in it was really good.

I make crockpot meals in my pressure cook all the time. Plus, the newer pressure cookers also have a slow cooker setting. I have my slow cooked in storage just in case I need it but I am seriously considering donating it because I have 2 pressure cookers, both with a slow cooker setting.

I made a new crockpot recipe tonight that was good. I think you probably could freeze it ahead of time, not sure. But since I'm always on the lookout for a good crockpot recipe, I thought I'd share it!
https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/...meatball-soup/
The pasta needed more than 15 minutes to cook, and I added some garlic salt. Otherwise we ate it as is and liked it!

I should add that converting from slow cooker to pressure cooker, you decrease the liquid.
