Now that Spring has sprung and sports have started back, I seriously feel like I am NEVER at home. My life is a constant trip to and from school and after school activities and, well, to be honest my family meals are suffering. I’ve long prided myself on the fact that no matter how busy life gets, my family sits down together around the table each night for a meal. But the older the kids get and the crazier their schedules get, the more challenging it’s becoming to make family dinners a reality. Realizing that I can’t do it all myself (nor do I want to some days), I’ve gotten smart. I’ve gotten crafty. And I’ve discovered that serving up a home cooked easy Beef Pot Roast for dinner is actually quite simple with a little help from Tyson®!
Now, I know, I know…you’re saying Pot Roast easy? Whatever! There’s all that chopping and prepping. But I’ve totally got a secret to share with all you busy mamas that is going to make your lives (and dinners) S-I-M-P-L-E! Are you ready? Wait for it…….all you have to do is go to Publix and pick up Tyson® Meal Kits! As I recently discovered, these meal kits that have everything you need for an amazing dinner that tastes like you started from scratch are ready and waiting in the easy meals section of the meat department! And nestled inside each one is everything (and I do mean everything) you need for a delicious family dinner!
With options like Beef Roast, Pork Roast and Beef Stew Kit, Tyson® Meal Kits literally take all the work out of cooking an amazing meal for my family. If you’re wondering how it can possibly be THAT easy….well, let me show you! On my weekly shopping trip to Publix, all I have to do is pick up my favorite Tyson® Meal Kit….which for us just happens to be the Beef Roast with Vegetables.
Then, on busy weekdays (or even weekends) the only prep work I have to do is pulling my Tyson® Meal Kit out of the refrigerator and removing the plastic wrap! Inside is my meat, my veggies and of course that bomb-diggity seasoning that makes it all come together so perfectly!
Getting my meal started takes only seconds. I simply pull out my slow cooker, open my beef roast and place it on the bottom.
Then I mix together one cup of water and my seasoning packet and pour it over the top.
After placing the veggies from my final packet over the top of my roast, its ready to do it’s thing and cook without any help at all from me!
I simply pop on the top of the slow cooker and turn the heat level to low if I want to cook it all day (10-11 hours) or high if I forgot about prepping dinner till around lunch time and want it to cook faster (3-4 hours).
Then I can walk away, run errands, pick up the kids from school or even make time for that much needed mani/pedi (I mean clean the house – ahem) knowing that when I return home my amazing meal will be cooked to perfection!
Once I’m done with the craziness of the day and left with three hungry boys looking expectantly at me, all I have to do is verify that the temperature of my meat is over 145 degrees F, pull it out of the slow cooker and serve it!
Just like that I have an amazing meal; one that tastes like I put a lot of time and energy into it. And if it just happens to be so simple that no effort is required? Well, let’s keep that little secret between you and me, OK?
As my family sits down to the dinner table and my hubby gives me an appreciative grin (beef pot roast is his favorite after all) and comments on how he can’t figure out how I get it all done in a day, I just smile and soak in his praises. Because I know the truth…that Tyson® Meal Kits simplify my days while allowing me to put a delicious, stress-free dinner on the table no matter how busy I am!
So there you have it – the secret to how this super busy mama pulls a fast one of her family and lets them think that I worked much harder on dinner than I really did.
