Freezing Meat

  • Here are some guidelines for how long you can safely store beef products, but always remember – WHEN IN DOUBT – THROW IT OUT!
  • Uncooked hamburger and stew meat can be frozen for 3-4 months. Uncooked, fresh steaks and roasts for 6-12 months.
  • Unopened lunch meats can be frozen and stored for 1-2 months (when stored in freezer wrap).
  • If you have leftover dishes with cooked beef in them, you can freeze them for about 2-3 months
