Using a crock pot, cook a chuck roast in your usual way, separate the meat and liquids into portions for soup starters and freeze. I freeze mine into 4 portions but it depends on how much meat you like in your soup.
When you're ready for soup, pop one portion into a pot, add a can of vegetable (v8) juice, a can of each, tomatoes, green beans, carrots, peas, corn, mushrooms and any leftover veggies from the freezer (broccoli, etc.). You can also add dried barley, onion, celery (which also can come from the freezer). Cook until the barley is done and you have homemade soup in minutes.
The celery can be frozen? Is there a particular way to do this, or did I misunderstand. Thank you, Laurie
