Keep it safe, freeze!
It’s a common knowledge to us all that freezing beef prolongs storage time because it avoids microbial growth. It is worth it to check our freezing guide for every meat we store and labelling them with the dates.
Why freezer storage times for cooked beef dishes are shorter than fresh beef
Certain flavours in cooked dishes, such as onion and garlic, oxidise in the freezer over time – it’s known as flavour tainting. Because many cooked beef dishes contain one or both of these ingredients, we recommend storing for no more than one month to keep the flavours tasting fresh.
