TIP FOR FREEZING COOKED MEAT

Remember for both your health and diet purposes portion control is key. Here is a tip for freezing leftover cooked meats such as pot roast, pork shoulder, etc so you don't try to eat it all "so it won't go to waste"! Freeze these meats in their cooking liquid as it will preserve the juicy flavor and tender texture. It will also guard against freezer burn.

Tip: Portion the cooled meat and place in ziptop freezer (not sandwich or storage) bags, add liquid, remove air, seal and freeze up to 4 to 6 weeks.

Note: Placing the meat in the bags in portion size rather than in a large bag will be very helpful if you have a problem with portion control.

Double Guard Freezer Bags work great for freezing meats.
