    Do you add the mushrooms and diced tomatoes anytime, then stir and cook for 6-8 hours? (Do not see that in the instructions)
    Thank you!

    Can I freeze this and cook it later? And if so, do I brown the meat before freezing?

      yes! I have some in my freezer right now :). Def brown it before, it will taste better and hold in the moisture.
