    Default What I did with a beef brisket



    i believe that once frozen, meat (and everything else) shouldn't be thawed and refrozen. also there is only a certain number of days it can stay in the fridge before the microbe growth becomes too high.cold temperaturesfor the fridge only slows the growth, it doesn't prevent it.


    for your safety, next time have it cut into smaller more managable pieces before freezing-something you can use up by day 4ish. we grind up our meat the day of purchase, add spices, and divide into labelled freezer bags-the sooner its frozen, the fresher the product.


    hope this helps.

    My local grocery had beef briskets on sale right before the 4th of July
    weekend for $.87 a pound and I bought one that weighed a little over 12
    pounds.

    Sense there is just my dh and me, I had the butcher to cut it in thirds.
    After we got home, I put each third in zippered freezer bags and froze
    them. Then this past Friday, after thawing one of the thirds in the
    fridge, I fixed it in the slow cooker. After it cooked and it cooled,
    dh cut most of the fat off. Dh, my brother and I ate on it for lunch
    and dinner until last night. Then this morning, I ground it up with my
    food grinder and put the meat in zippered freezer bags and froze it for
    later use. I will get it out sometime next month, and after it thaws
    out, I will put it in a skillet and put some bar-b-que sauce on it and
    heat it up for bar-b-que sandwiches.

    I will be able to have several meals from the briskets that`s
    left.

    I usually buy brisket when it's on sale, cut it into smaller pieces

    and trim off some of the fat, myself. I then place it in my crock

    pots for however long it takes to cook it. Once it's cooled down, I

    will cut it and mix with bbq sauce. I'll put this in containers or

    freezer bags, then most of it goes in the freezer. It's just me, and

    this will give me plenty of bbq beef sandwich stuff, which I now no

    longer buy in the store premade.

    Allison: I worked for many years at a child care center, where I was

    assistant cook. We fixed breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks for

    the

    children. The state health inspecter would come every so often to

    inspect the kitchen; and one of the things he stated to us every time

    was that once raw meat was thawed out we could not re-freeze it; but

    once it was cooked, we could freeze it. I`m sorry if I sound huffy

    about this, but I`m just stating what we were told.

    That is right. I've been around commercial cooking almost all my

    life. It can be frozen and thawed once raw, then once after

    cooking. Mom worked in a restaurant when I was little, one of my

    uncles owned a restaurant when I was older. I've worked in several

    restaurants and fast food places through the years, too.

    i was just trying to help.


    if you feel that getting angry will help your situation then go ahead but the toxins from the pathogens can still be there...


    if you were to refreeze the meat as soon as cooked(assuming its properly handled) then it would just lose someflavor due to moisture-loss from the refreezing process. not too good but not dangerous.





    but you took meat that was cooked 1 day and refroze it 5 days later. that is dangerous.it's bacteria had already grown and multiplied to an amount that can make you sick-and you can't see from the outward appearance of the item. cooking again will not kill the toxins.





    did the inspector know that it was around5 daysinthe fridge before it was refrozen? my kids bring their own lunch to preschool.
