Buying Beef At A Discount

If you want to keep the meal budget-friendly, you can check out the ground beef sales at Fresh Market or your local grocery store. I usually go each Tuesday and get the beef on sale.

We love the beef at Fresh Market, and it’s usually a great price. We will get several pounds and freeze it to use at other times during the week.

If you can get the beef at a discount and cook it up and then freeze it, it makes life a lot easier. Then, you can pull it out and add it to the Crock Pot when you’re ready.
