How should raw ground beef be stored at home?

Refrigerate or freeze ground beef as soon as possible after purchase. This preserves freshness and slows growth of bacteria. It can be refrigerated or frozen in its original packaging if the meat will be used soon.


If refrigerated, keep at 40 °F or below and use within 1 or 2 days.


For longer freezer storage, wrap in heavy duty plastic wrap, aluminum foil, freezer paper, or plastic bags made for freezing. Ground beef is safe indefinitely if kept frozen, but will lose quality over time. It is best if used within 4 months. Mark your packages with the date they were placed in the freezer so you can keep track of storage times.


Personally? I would probably toss it, unless there were dire circumstances involved.

Thank you guys so much!! I vote for chuck - but if DH wants to eat it - it's all him! The kids and I will eat ... just about anything else!


His dad does this too - find the oldest thing in the house and then eat it. Grosses me out.


Cook it and give it to the dog! (Or a friend's dogs!)
