Low Carb Crockpot Beef Ragu Meal Prep

As a kid, I (Sarah), remember my dad in the kitchen every Sunday making big meals that we would enjoy midafternoon. In the winter months, he almost always used the crockpot, unless he was making a lasagna or another casserole. The house always had a comfort food feeling during the winter and by the time he was done cooking we had a freezer full of food for the week. All for cheap, of course, because we didn’t have a lot of money.

We wanted to recreate a few hearty crockpot recipes that were easy to meal prep and cost-effective for everyone — while giving you that comfort food feeling. Things like chili and pot roast are two of our favorites. But, we also wanted a low carb alternative and thought this recipe would fit the bill!

It brings together so many of the best fall flavors, while still be extremely easy and ringing in at under $4 a serving. It works well for lunch, dinner or even a big family Sunday brunch. Just to be sure to make extra because everyone will love this recipe! Oh, and if you happen to want to invite us over, we wouldn’t turn down the offer 😉
