OK, I am new and I need help. I have spent all day looking on the net for some answer and you all sound very experienced perhaps you can help. We got into a buying club and they had wonderful pre-packed steaks and pork steaks and fish that they would bring to your door. This was great when I had time to cook. I never needed to go to the store. However life changed and I was gone so much I never had time to cook anymore. It kept building and building up in the freezer. We have finally canceled the club and at least 3 years have gone by, now we are left with slightly old freezer goods. The last steak I tried to cook had that "Freezer burn" taste to it. So I put it in a stew, we called it the stew of mediocre-ness. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either. We managed our first helping but the leftovers sat in the fridge until it was eventually tossed.
What can one do? Any marinates that I can whip up to help? How old is too old? How long can you keep something in the freezer? What can you do to make it taste great again?
I hate to throw it all out we spent so much money on it and they are great quality meats. Can anyone give me some advice?
