HOW TO PROPERLY STORE BEEF:


As with all food, food safety practices need to be carried over into your home. In order to make sure you are serving the highest quality beef, please follow these guidelines:

Storage:

3-5 days in the refrigerator

6-12 months in the freezer (roast)

4-6 months in the freezer (steaks)

3-4 months in the freezer (stew)


Here are some basic guidelines for storing meat in the refrigerator:

Raw ground meats, all poultry, seafood, and variety meats: Refrigerate 1 to 2 days

Raw roasts, steaks, and chops (beef, veal, lamb, and pork): Refrigerate 3 to 5 days

Cooked meat, poultry, and seafood: Store in the refrigerator 3 to 4 days

COOKING GROUND BEEF:

To cook ground beef safely, please ensure it is cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit (71 degrees Celsius).


Additional Tips:

Keep refrigerated below 40 degrees Fahrenheit until prep time

Prepare on a clean surface

Always wash any surface on which raw meat sat prior to using it for cooked meat in order to avoid cross-contamination

Test the internal temperature before serving

Store & refrigerate leftovers in an air-tight container
