$10 Dollars + 10 Minutes = 3 Freezer Meals for the Grill

I've mentioned before how much Wildtree Products can save you time and money in the kitchen., our grocery store was having a huge sale on meat. {SCORE} Most people choose to pass on meat that needs to be used in a day or two, but when you put it in a freezer doesn't matter. You get the best deals this way! 
So...for less than $10, I bought 4 center-cut loin pork chops and 2 ribeye steaks!
 As soon as I got home, I got out a couple Wildtree ingredients from the cupboard, a couple gallon sized freezer bags and went to work. 10 minutes later, I had three meals {I'll have leftovers for sure.} ready to go in the freezer to marinate so we can just throw them on the grill later. 
{Freezer meals have saved my life! I cannot tell you how fabulous it is to have a freezer full of meals ready to go at all time!}

Here's what I made!

2 Center Cut Loin Chops
Gallon Freezer Bag

I use the dump, squish, mush, freeze method of Freezer Meal making!
Dump all of the ingredients in the bag.
Mush and smush it all around to make sure that everything is coated well.
Squeeze all of the air out and freeze! 
When you are ready to eat, you just take it out the night before and thaw in the fridge. 
You can thaw in the microwave if you forget to take it out. {Like I usually do!}
I {try} to take out about 3 meals on Sundays and stick them in the fridge to thaw for the week. We always have leftovers and so 3 meals gets us at least 5 meals for the week and we can still eat out once and have something like frozen pizza one night as well. 

Here are the other two meals for the week!

2 Center Cut Pork Chops
Gallon Freezer Bag

w/Blue Cheese Crowns
{Hubby's Favorite}
Gallon Freezer Bag

Make sure that you don't use too much Rancher or it will be very salty later. 
I try to make sure a little is all over but it's not coated. 
While you have the steaks on the grill, you can mix together the {crowns}.
You can do this before hand and freeze them, or just mix it up quick when grilling. 

1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 Blue Cheese Crumbles
3Tbs Melted Butter
Mix all of this together in a bowl to form a paste. 
(Measurements are approx.)
Make the paste into small patties and place on the steak for the last couple minutes of grilling so that the cheese starts to melt and bread crumbs get crispy. 

There you have it! 
$10, 10 minutes and 3 meals ready to throw on the grill to stick in the freezer. 

Happy Grilling!
