In my real life I’ve been needing to think of some practical dinner solutions so that we can continue sitting down together as a family. So this series I began last week with pulled pork recipes is based on a real need. This is meal planning for busy families. This ‘cook once eat all week’ series is based around the concept of cooking a big batch of meat on Sunday and then portioning it into meal prep containers for simple dinners all week long.

As I was deciding on beef recipes to create I wanted to use what I already had in my refrigerator (as I would in real life). And so I’m using many of the same sauces that I used when creating my pork recipes. The BBQ Buffalo sauce came about because I didn’t have quite enough BBQ sauce for the amount of beef I was going to serve for one meal but I had some Redhot Buffalo sauce. I thought maybe the two would be good combined together and they are! I’m getting more frugal in my old age 😉 These meals are all convenient and economical for on-the-go families like ours.
