50 Large Family Keto Instant Pot Freezer Meals | Low Carb, THM, Gluten Free | PART ONE

– Confessions from the cabinet The sell by date, if you can't read that, it says October 2015

So yeah, I guess this is goin' in the trash Happy freezer cookin' day, friends I have about 20 new, large family style, keto recipes Most of these can be done in the Instant Pot or slow cooker, I'm gonna have all the recipes over on largefamilytablecom, and you can either use your Instant Pot or use your slow cooker, any way you wanna do it

I also have several low-carb oven bakes that you're gonna love, like we are gonna do lasagna with cabbage leaves, it's gonna be fantastic Earlier in the day, Travis went and picked up that large family grocery shoppin' haul for me Course we have a lot of the beef already, I need 20 pounds of cooked ground beef, and I need a whole lot of steak roast, and we have all of those on hand We had to buy ground turkey, had to buy salmon, had to buy some pork roast, and we bought a lotta chicken We're gonna write out all the recipes that we're doing today, and how many I think I'm getting out of each

Here is what we're doin', in my head it made sense, I moved it around based on protein So based on this steak roast, we're gonna do beef fajitas, balsamic rosemary roast, Philly cheesesteak, and Italian beef roast The only real pork thing that I have on these recipes, is a roasted Caesar pork We're gonna also do buffalo chicken wraps Of course we're doin' the buffalo chicken, but my plan is to have them in wraps

We're also gonna do spicy chicken drumsticks, now it was gonna be chicken wings, but Walmart substituted my wings for drumsticks We're gonna do lime and cilantro chicken, balsamic and lemon chicken, coconut and lime chicken, chicken and cauliflower curry, Greek chicken, bacon chicken stew, and Italian chicken Low-carb meatloaf, we're gonna do the stuffed peppers, and then we're doin' low-carb salmon cakes, turkey meatballs, cabbage lasagna, and also a bacon cheeseburger bake I may have a problem with the turkey meatballs I just realized I did not see turkey in our Walmart grocery pickup order

Yeah it's so sad, I was just here goin' over my Walmart grocery order again, and man, there's not turkey on there I had so many glitches with that grocery cart last night when I was puttin' in my large family grocery shopping order It was just a mess, I had items disappearing or going to zero For milks, I ordered seven or eight milks, but the order only went through for two And there's just no turkey on here

It's almost five o'clock here, now that I'm starting to do these I do have assembly with some yes, but over three quarters of these are just the dump and go type, bag style, freezer meals So, I hope this won't take me too terribly long, but I also need to get something for dinner cooking now So I think I'm gonna go ahead and do the chicken and cauliflower curry Get that goin' in the Instant Pot, and that's what we'll have for dinner, 'cause that's what Mama says she wants

So what I have goin' on here, of course I've got about three pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast there I've got some frozen cauliflower in the back I have more fresh cauliflower I need to process, but I prefer to use that if the work is done Spice-wise, we have garlic and onion Of course we have curry powder, little bit of paprika

Gonna put in a can of coconut milk, and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies Got our chicken in there, now I'm puttin' in a can of coconut milk, diced tomatoes, Mr Travis is gonna say, "No, no" He is not a diced tomato fan but oh well, it's good Rule of thumb with the Instant Pot or any electric pressure cooker, is that you need eight ounces of liquid of some sort to build up the steam

So I got my valve set, now I'm gonna put it on manual high We're gonna put it on for 25 minutes Since I just got that chicken and cauliflower curry goin' in the Instant Pot, I would go ahead and make my other freezer meals along that line and then I went ahead, I put a little D beside my dump meals, or the throw and go meals as I like to call 'em I have at least 10 meals that I'm just gonna literally dump everything in bags Several of these beef meals are the same, but I do wanna cut the chicken in strips for fajitas and Philly cheesesteak

I'm also gonna get the bacon cooking for the bacon cheeseburger bake I have ground beef cooking for the cabbage lasagna as well, and then I have defrosted meat for the meatloaf So yeah, comin' together It hopefully be fast, quick, and in hurry it's 5:05 now So behind the scenes here, Jayden is helping

He's attached a GoPro to our kitchen ceiling, so that yay! Now you all can have overhead footage, like we know what we're doing Hi! So I wanna get the rest of the chicken cauliflower curry in bags, I've gotta chop up a bunch a cauliflower now and this is my vegetable stack to work with here So I just did one bag, large family style of course, of this chicken and cauliflower curry And now I'll show ya I put it all together So I have about three pounds of chicken breasts in here, you can also use chicken thighs, I just used a boneless chicken

I'm also puttin' in a can of unsweetened coconut milk, this is a 135 ounce can And then you'll see with these bag holders, I mean I don't even have this one clipped, but it still helps to sandwich the bags together I have a whole collection of these, and animal crackers on the chair, but you'll be proud, I'm not eatin' 'em With these holders, I'll have the link in the description below, 'cause these are really helpful with doin' these throw and go meals

A can of these diced tomatoes and chilies, and there's our curry And then paprika, and garlic powder, and onion powder So here we go, I made one for my family and one for a friend's family And so whenever these are frozen, and let's say I wanna use it in my instant Pot I can set it out in the refrigerator the night before, then I can just dump it in the slow cooker the next morning or at lunchtime, and it'll be ready by dinnertime

And thinkin' ahead to other recipes, I try to think ahead when I have these casseroles and such, especially since I don't have my large family freezer meal plan with that batch cooking guide to just hold my hand and tell me exactly what to do We make those after the fact, so they're easier the following time So this is what I do for you, ha-ha Anyway, I know I have the bacon cheeseburger bake comin' up after I'm done with all of my bag meals here So Zion did, this is three pounds of bacon

He twisted it, we're gonna chop it all up for the bacon cheeseburger bake anyway Gonna get in the oven now, and then of course the big temptation will be to not eat it, and save it for the recipe So I jammed these freezer meal bags full of the chicken breast, this is about four and a half pounds each I'm gonna put in a half a cup of fresh parsley Gonna put in a whole squeezed lime

I'm gonna put in one can of coconut milk in each bag, and I'm gonna put in a tablespoon each of ground ginger I also have some ginger paste, you could use that just the same This is just what I put my hands on first And then also, we're puttin' in two tablespoons each of minced garlic Okay, so what I ended up with is, I'm actually gonna be able to do six various keto-friendly, low-carb, all of that, pork roast

What I'm gonna do is, four of these are gonna be a roasted Caesar pork roast, and then two are gonna be a zesty Italian pork roast Ya see what happened is, I had only planned for four, but then two of the roast Walmart gave me were actually six pound roast And so I cut those two in half and there we go And this is the dressing I'm using to make it easy on myself This Ken's Steak House, from what I've read, it is gluten-free

And so I'm going to use half a bottle, I've got two bottles in each of these four bags And then also, put in half a cup of fresh parsley into each bag I'm gonna seal those up now, and you can see I'm not followin' my own advice Monkey see, monkey do, or not do in this case, I haven't been labelin' my bags first I don't always do that because sometimes ya spill things on your bags, I just wait until I seal 'em, wipe them off, and then write on 'em

So either, six one way, half dozen another Okay, we're makin' progress, bacon is done I just taste-tested it, it's just fine The chicken cauliflower curry is done, I am doing two pounds of brown rice on the stove right now And then for these two zesty Italian pork roast, I did one of the Italian packets, and I did about a fourth of a cup of fresh parsley in these

Crossin' some more off our list, which is always good So now I'm puttin' together my bags for the buffalo chicken meat, which will be for buffalo chicken wraps in particular Kids can use a tortilla wrap, I can use a lettuce wrap What we're gonna do is I've got two bags here with three pounds of chicken each I'm gonna put in a cup of Frank's hot sauce into each bag

I'm gonna put in about a cup of carrots into each bag, and then half of this celery, half of the green onions, which is about half a cup each All into the bag, also I'm gonna put two tablespoons each of minced garlic Buffalo chicken wraps done, I got two of those made Here's my chicken and cauliflower curry I'm havin' it over some warmed up cabbage, I warmed up the cabbage with two tablespoons of butter, (laughs) whole lotta healthy fat

The kids are having theirs over brown rice and then I'll get back to makin' bag meals Okay next up, I am doing about five bags, I'm doing three pounds of chicken drumsticks each, and we're gonna do a spicy chicken in these bags It's gonna look very similar to the buffalo chicken we did for the chicken wraps, only these are drumsticks And I just got this bag labeled And then what I added to this recipe, I've never tried this before, but I just think with my flavor pallette (laughs), I think it'll taste yummy

I had just a little bit of that creamy Caesar dressing left and so I added in, this is probably only a fourth of a cup, into these bags of spicy chicken drumsticks I'm going to test it out, but I think that's gonna be really good, and I may in the future end up adding more I got on the phone with a friend so I didn't record this, but I did two bags of the lime and cilantro chicken So that's ready to go Again, the recipe for that'll be over on largefamilytable

com Right now, I'm going to do the balsamic and lemon chicken, then we're gonna do that Greek chicken, bacon chicken stew, and Italian chicken, and I'll be done with the chicken for today We'll move onto the beef items So now I'm going to do two bags of Greek chicken I'm not gonna put any olives in it though because honestly, that would probably freak some of my kids out, because haven't served too many things with olives

Here are the two bags of the Greek chicken, and now when I go to serve it, I will serve it sprinkled with a cup of feta as well You don't add that to the freezing process, again, that's just at serving time Next up, I am doing Italian chicken and all it is, it's four pounds of chicken in each bag, and I have a bottle of Ken's Steak House Italian, extra virgin olive oil dressing and marinade I'm gonna pour half of this bottle in each bag and that is it I'm sorry, I'm losin' my voice now

It's just a goofy thing, but I cut up several roasts for these next couple recipes What we're gonna do, beef fajitas, and then we're don' Philly cheesesteak So far in the beef fajita bags, I have a whole green bell pepper, a whole red bell pepper, a fourth of a cup of cilantro because I had it chopped Put a tablespoon of minced garlic in there, now I'm gonna put in some ground cumin, and some chili powder And then one can each of these mild diced tomatoes with green chilies, and then we'll put the meat slices in

So here are both of the beef fajita bags And remember, whenever we serve these, these are with about three pounds of meat For an average family, that sounds like plenty For a larger family you know, you'll need to add things to it to stretch it So when we have these, we may also have some refried beans or some rice

And then we'll have wraps and then of course, I will use lettuce wraps or cabbage leaf wraps or some other low-carb option Now I'm workin' on this Italian peppered beef roast, actually the cuts of meat that I'm using are sirloin top Those looked a little smaller to me, so I put two in each of these bags, 'cause I wanted it to be about four pounds of meat for each roast Now we're gonna put in half an onion, and then we're gonna put in a whole jar of these super yummy peppers and go from there
