It’s the time of year for hearty foods that don’t require much hands-on preparation and this beef stew fits the bill 100%. Two packages of Pre grass-fed 24 oz chuck roasts for $3.62 each after 25% off sale, 50% off sticker and $2 Ibotta rebate (also got 25 points on the receipt from Fetch Rewards. Bought five some months ago and popped them in the freezer (they’re vacuum-sealed). Veggies were Earthbound organic that are normally very expensive – the large snacking trays on clearance were only $2.99! Baking potatoes were 25¢/lb and one onion. I’m estimating high at about $12.50 to include seasonings & some clearance jars of cooking sauce.
This is a big cast iron Dutch oven and will provide many meals over the next week – storage on the back porch since it’s colder than the fridge this time of year.
