Frequently asked questions
Do the meals come with the meat?
No, each crockstar meal comes with all of the ingredients; all you add is the meat and occasionally an item or two. For example: Sour cream, cheese or noodles.
Can the meal and meat go into the crockpot frozen or do I need to thaw it first?
All meats AND Crockstar meals can absolutely go in the crockpot frozen! You do not have to alter your cook times unless it is a large and thick meat like a roast. In that case, add an hour or two depending on how large the meat is.
What are your hours?
"Do I add water to this? It doesn't say to do so on my bag." (i.e. Brown Sugar & Garlic, Caribbean, Thunder, etc.)
Always follow the directions on the sticker. If it doesn't say to add water, then that means the juices from the meat will do their job and make the meal extra delicious and so no extra water is needed.
Do you have Gluten Free meals?
Yes! Every meal that is Gluten Free will say GF next to it. We also offer Dairy Free (DF) & Soy Free (SF) meals as well.
How many servings are in each meal?
Every meal feeds 6-8. You can change that depending on how much or how little meat you add.
What all do I need to add to the meals?
Just the meat! Occasionally we will have you add a little bit of sour cream or cheese but it will let you know on the sticker and on the grocery list as well.
How long do the meals keep?
Dry meals are good for a year in the pantry, fridge or freezer (it's all preference). Wet meals are good in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and in the freezer for up to a year. If you add the meat before you freeze the meal, they are good for up to 6 months in the freezer.
How much are the meals & is the tax included or is it extra?
Most meals range from $6-$10. Regular meals are typically $6-$7 each. Dips and dessert prices range from $8 - $10 and Keto & Low Carb meals are $8. Taxes will be added seperately.
Do you have any discount codes?
You can use the code BUY15 when you buy 15 meals! You get the 16th meal for FREE! Unfortunately this code is not valid for shipping orders.
Do you have nutritional facts?
Yes! If we have the nutritional facts you can find them under the "Nutrition Facts" page; For your convenience we try to bold the meals that we are serving for that month.
How do I know what meat to buy?
All meat (and any other add-ins needed) will be on the grocery list as well as on the sticker of the meal.
Are there meal descriptions or pictures?
We are currently working on getting more pictures for the meals. But we do have quite a few at this time. The pictures will be scattered throughout the website.
Do you offer any other menus like Keto, Weight Watchers, Low Carb, etc?
We currently offer Keto & Low Carb Menu. You can find the order form on our "Order Now" tab. These healthy options are typically $8 each. We are constantly looking for ways to help our customers be the best person they can be and we will continue to strive to always have a healthy option when possible. We have several meals on the menus that are considered Low Carb that are not necessarily on the Low Carb/Keto Menu that we have offered for a long time. So be sure to check out the Nutrition Page if you are wanting more options.
What is Crockstar Dinner Club?
We prep crockpot meals for you so you don't have to! All you have to do is add the meat (and occasionally a few other items). Once you are ready to make your meal, you simply toss the meat into the crockpot, and the bag of ingredients, and cook for the given time. It's super simple and yummy! You can come into the store during business hours and purchase anything we have on hand. We always have over 30 meals available in the store at all times or we also have a full shipping menu as well. We look forward to doing business with you & Happy Crockstar-ing!
Do you have meals that we can come in and purchase during store hours or do we have to place an order?
We always have meals for sale during any of our open hours so you can absolutely come in and see what we have! We encourage ordering for the sole purpose that you are guaranteed to get exactly what you are wanting whereas everything we have available for sale at the store is first come first serve so when we're out, we're out! Some meals we have all the time in the store but the freezer/wet meals we don't always have. So if you see something on the menu that you like, you should definitely order it in case we run out before you get a chance to come in.
Do I need to cook the ground beef first?
We suggest you cook the meat first but you do not have to! We prefer it to be cooked first for the simple fact that all that grease that you would normally drain will stay in the crockpot and it can change the texture of your meal. It is honestly all a matter of preference.
Do I just come into the store to purchase meals?
We always have plenty of meals available to purchase in the store so you can come in during any of our open store hours. Everything is first come, first serve in the store front so although we make lots of extra meals, nothing is ever guaranteed. Whether you are new or you just don't want to place an order, you can definitely come into the store anytime and we will have 30+ meals to choose from at all times and most of the time much more!!
Can I use these meals in my InstaPot?
Absolutely! We do not give specific cook times because every pressure cooker is different. You can easily find crockpot to pressure cooker conversion charts on Pinterest that are super helpful.
