anyways, I have some chicken, ribs in the fridge right now, it's last friday's meal, 4 days old, and wondering if it's still good. I threw in the freezer question too, because I do use meat for beans thats been in there for months,,,
As far as I'm concerned...the meat that you've cooked, vacuum sealed and frozen is good for well over a year, maybe two. Heck, I have chicken, pork and beef sealed in my freezer that is well over that and I wouldn't hesitate to reheat and serve.
In the fridge, I just remember when I was a kid I ate at that Turkey for a week after Thanksgiving....I'd guess if it were sealed and kept cold in the refrigerator it'd be great for a month or two.
I've also changed my mind about boiling the frozen food bags....'tis just a simmer for me for now on. I've also used the notch just above defrost for about 20 mins to heat it up.
Just my opinion,
