Crockpot Beef and Cabbage Stew

Make it at home and freeze it or slow-cook it on the go! This crockpot beef and cabbage stew is a delicious go-to for RVers…

You’ll love this recipe for camping because cooking doesn’t take time away from your vacation! You can cook it in advance to stock your RV freezer or toss it in the crockpot on the go.

It’s usually the first dinner in our camping meal plan. We like to brown the meat and prep the veggies at home before we leave. Then, we put it all in the crockpot and plug it in in the RV. To keep the crockpot stable, we place it in our RV sink, padded by towels.

Then, when we arrive at camp, we don’t have to worry about making dinner in addition to setting up camp. It’s ready to eat!
