When you do stock up on beef at your local grocery store, you will need to know how to handle and store it to keep it the freshest that you can. If it takes longer than 30 minutes to get your beef home, consider bringing a cooler to keep it in. When you are home, refrigerate or freeze your beef as soon as you are able to. Always keep beef packages on the lowest shelf in your in your refrigerator and keep it on a plate so the juices don’t get all over.
Thaw your steaks and roasts in the fridge, never at room temperature. I never knew this, did you?? Be sure to place the frozen package on a plate. A quick tip you can quickly thaw ground beef in your microwave (which I do all the time!) in five minutes or less. You can find out more great tips and important links online at Beef.
