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:
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).
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
