Hello my husband and I raise beef and delivered our daughters 1/4 last week (half side). She called last night to say her freezer has quit ~ great! today we are in a cooking frenzy. If anyone has any tips on how best to cook the steaks for her to refreeze and use later please advise. I believe we have all the other cuts planned out. TNX. Deb
cook ahead beef
Cut streaks are touchy but can be done. Mark on grill cook to very rare. cool quickly then refridge . To reheat either put in 250 oven wrapped tight in foil about 1/2 hour.check. Steak wont be really hot but at an eatable temp.

Dear Ed & mrn; Thank you for the info and tips which confirm my thoughts exactly ~ the plan at present is to do a mild seasoning and then do a quick grill (monitoring each cut) and upon Ed's advise will followup with a quick cool and will then pack in an airtight foodsaver bag and freeze with note as per cooking instructions. Thanks so much ~ from our kitchen to yours. Debra ~ Seameadows Farm
