question- how long can you safely- both quality & otherw

freeze beef/pork? My wife believes the price is about ready to go thru the roof, & wanted to buy some now, just in case. We don't have a vacum machine, but do have a nice upright freezer. Any thoughts? Any thoughts on the best way to defrost? We ususally just let it sit out for a few hours & put wiltshirer sauce in the bag. Thanks in advance Pete

I would highly suggest making the small investment of a vacuum sealer since you do not have one, it will pay for itself in no time.

If food is properly sealed it will last forever frozen. I've had food that was vacuum sealed and been in the freezer for a couple years with no problem.
