Do yourself a favor, and buy a vacuum sealer. Sam’s Club has a nice one for around a hundred bucks. This is chicken, steak, and halibut all charcoal grilled on one batch of coals. Took me 45 minutes to cook it all. I don’t even bother freezing these, fridge only. They get nuked in the bag still and taste like theyre fresh off of the grill. All of the juices stay locked in, and the steaks even stay at medium rare throughout the microwaving.[/quote]
I just have to say, that is the least appetizing picture I’ve ever seen of appetizing food.
And, I tried a vacuum sealer once, but it seemed like a lot of bullshit, but I hear a lot of good things about them…
Any opinions on brands and processes? My fridge blows, and I find my chicken goes bad before I can cook it, half the time…[/quote]
In my defense, that pic was more to show quantity than quality. It looks better on the plate.
I use FoodSaver brand and I basically just charcoal grill the meat, let it rest 5 minutes so the juices reabsorb and then I seal it while still hot. Once it cools a little I throw it in the fridge and it will last at least 10 days with no degradation in quality. I usually eat through that much quicker though - I only found out it was still good after 10 days when I forgot about a chicken breast while on vacation. Tasted yummy when I got home.
EDIT: hmmm looks like tnation decided to rotate my picture for me…lol looks tastier if you tilt your head
