I am new to the cooking world and with my work schedule makes it hard to throw a whole meal together for the whole family when I just work a graveyard shift that usually ended up being a 15 hours shift. So I heard that you can pre-cook food, freeze them and then reheat them on a pan the next day to eat.
My question is can I pre-cook Pork, chicken, beef, shrimp and salmon with seasoning. Let it cool and then put it in a vacuum bags and sealed it. After that put them in the freezer to freeze them. Then the next day, take it our and re-cook them. If I am able to do it. How long will it last in the freezer? Will it taste the same? Is there a different cooking meat hod I have to do for food that have been cooked and freeze? Have any of the Professional Chefs on this forum done this at their restaurant? (Just want to know if it is a safe practice for meal prepping for the whole week).
Also very curious if this is possible. My wife want to throw a X-mas party this year. I am wonder if I can do this same method of pre-cook, freeze, and re-heat for the party? The food will be catering style for about 50 people. After I cook them it will be in a food warmer. Will that be safe to do and how long does it last in that food warmer?
You help and advice to this clueless at home cook will be helpful.
