Freezing Meat

Hi, I would really the input of any experienced cooker on this matter :

I am wondering if it is safe to :

-Freeze a meal cooked with meat that has been defrosted?

-Freeze meat that is labeled : “come from frozen/fresh part” that is usually for the ground beef.

What do you guys think about this?

Thanks.

Yes and yes bro you can freeze anything really, fruits many time get a whacky ass texture after it but its all good seal or wrap it and freeze away.

I have a vaccuum sealer. I have meals already cooked for next week in the freezer. All I have to do is let them thaw and microwave them. It was probably one of the better things I have ever bought.

Wow your first two responses are from the big boys, and then little me.

Yeah dude freeze it but watch the microwaving with the plastic. You can get some great glass jars to nuke shit in.

They say that you shouldn’t refreeze raw meat. But I’ve done it before to no unusual effect. Then again I have had salmonella and other food poisoning like 7 times so get out the salt on that advice. But the more times you get salmonella the easier it is, barely notice nowadays.

That’s the one I got as well, however, I was looking to buy for a friend of mine and I couldn’t find it again, not even online. They apparently quick making that model even though it was the best one for that price. The cheaper model they make now sucks ass which means your choice for a good one is going to run you about 45 bucks or more.

The benefit is they also have those sealable containers so I have whole meals already prepared for this coming week. It means I don’t have to spend an hour a night this week cooking.

DO NOT BUY THE TOASTESS SEALER IN THE PICTURE ABOVE.

In fact, it is so bad, it doesn’t suck.
