We believe that fresh meat has the best flavour and texture. That said, if you must freeze your meat, leave it in its vacuum-sealed packaging and store it in your freezer.
How long will the meat last in my fridge?
Your order is packaged in vacuum-sealed material so it can be transported safely. Kept in this packaging, the meat will stay fresh in your refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.
How long will the meat last in my freezer?
The temperature in your freezer should be -17 C or below. Kept in its original packaging and in this temperature range, beef will keep for 8 months. Lamb and veal should be used within 6-8 months. Pork should be used within 4-6 months.
I put my meat in the freezer when I received it. How should I thaw it?
All meat must be at room temperature before cooking. Defrosting time depends on the size of the cut of meat.
Place on the lower rack of the refrigerator on the morning of the dinner. About four hours before cooking time, put the chops on the kitchen counter to finish thawing and reach room temperature.
A big steak, such as a two-inch porterhouse, should be placed on the lowest rack of the refrigerator at dinnertime the night before. If the steak is still frozen in the morning, take it out of the refrigerator around noon and put it on the kitchen counter to finish thawing.
Allow a large roast to "rest" in your refrigerator for a couple of days. Then bring it to room temperature early on the morning of the day you will be roasting.
