Cooking in bulk

I'm starting a job with long hours and I don't have much time after work to cook. What can I make in bulk on a Sunday that will last 4-5 nights?

All I can think of that's easy is chilli but I'm getting sick of it.

    Basically any pasta in tomato sauce. It needs to be extremely saucy and undercooked. The office microwave actually finishes the cooking. I like to add cheese and ham to it

    Get yourself a big pork shoulder and slow cook it in some beef stock and bbq sauce in a crock pot for like 4-6 hours, and make burritos with the meat and whatever you like in your burritos.

    Chicken and Rice Some Steamed Veggies and some homemade sauce. Healthy CHeap and Easy.

    Soup, stew, casserole, lasagna, stuffed peppers, roast beef, pulled pork.

    Buy a slow cooker, throw chicken/beef/pork into it with broth and vegetables and make some rice or pasta as a side, put it in tupperware, and heat it up at work.

    Big dishes like cottage pie, lasagna, meatloaf.
    And if you do make it, make 2, and then before you toss it in the oven, freeze one.

    I usually group ingredients together so that I can bulk buy, prep and cook at the same time but in different pans, adding the differing ingredients in the pans as necessary.

    I prepped breakfast burritos for the first time today. Followed this recipe:
    Only change I made is I upgraded to potatoes O'Brien, adding jalapenos. Recipe yields twice as much filling than can fit in the amount of tortillas it calls for, buy double. Next week I'll do sausage and bacon. If you really wanna cheap out, replace all ingredients a couple cans each of refried beans and diced tomatoes/green chilis for taco bell at home

      Bro those burritos are woefully underfilled they should be like bricks

    One of my go-tos is a soup/stew with chuck, lots of potatoes, onion and kale or cabbage, seasoned with Worcestershire sauce, thyme, sage and bay leaf. Tomato paste is a good addition..

    chorizo + + garlic + tomatoes + olives + peppers + rice + seasoning (herbs and paprika etc.)

    I've been living off lean ground beef + roasted brocc + jasmine rice since the beginning of the year

    >1lb or so of 90% ground beef
    >fresh brocc not that frozen shit
    >1c of uncooked white rice
    >1 onion
    >some garlic
    >soy sauce
    >corn starch

    1) cook the rice how you see fit.
    2) cut up brocc and toss in olive oil, salt, papper, garlic salt. cook 425 for 20-ish minutes
    3) in a pan, heat up olive oil and fry up some diced onions. then add garlic. then add ground beef. get ground beef mostly cooked then add your sauce: 1/4c soy sauce, 2tbsp honey, some corn starch.
    4) add your roasted brocc to this
    5) add some rice on the side and enjoy

    when I'm bored of this I replace the soy sauce with franks hot sauce and then also add a fried egg on top of this

    I made a cheesy vegetable soup with oats and chunks of ham once and it was really gud
    >steam carrots and broccoli with chicken broth
    >dump them in broth, puree
    >add more broth, oats, ham
    >simmer with milk, cheese (I used sharp cheddar), and spices
    I need to make it again. Could probably add lentils too.

    So soups/stews are the obvious and easy way to go, but don't be afraid to just Google around for soup recipes, they're all cheap and easy as frick, some of my favorites: ham and corn chowder, sausage and potato, potato leek, gumbo,

    Once you get tired of that though here's some of my common fallbacks.
    Baked ziti
    Beouf bourguignon
    Coq Au Vin
    Pot roast
    Beef stroganoff
    Shepherds pie
    Dublin coddle

    Also as someone that cooks in a similar fashion, I would recommend two things. Grill up a couple of chicken breasts, buy a bunch of salad stuff, then you can just throw them together without even heating the chicken. Also bake bread on the weekends for sandwiches. Both of those can replace a leftover meal if you want variety or just be brought for lunch.

    Buy cheese, eat cheese. Zero prep, delicious AF.

    >What can I make in bulk on a Sunday that will last 4-5 nights?
    literally anything in a slow cooker
    only takes 5min of prep, chuck your veg and meat in and forget about it
    day drink, nap, play vidya or w/e for 8 hours then you have 4-8 servings of good food ready to box up and throw in the freezer.

    >I'm starting a job with long hours and I don't have much time after work to cook
    Me too! (although I have been doing this for over two years)
    I work every other Sunday but I have Wednesdays off.
    I batch cook chillies, bolognese type mixes and curries and put them into 500ml containers (6 for £1.00) or I have used freezer bags before. I have paired them with 2Min microwave rice, or flavoured cous cous, that takes 2 mins of boiling water.

    Sometimes I'm too knackered to cook anything, so it's a tin of sardines in tomato sauce, covered with flavoured cous cous, boiling water and wa-laa, a meal in two minutes.
