We grill 3# of hamburgers at a time and shape them to fit in wide mouth mason jars. We grill them to about "medium" so as not to dry the meat out too much. Once cooled, put them on a cookie sheet and freeze them before storing in the mason jar w/ waxed paper between. This last batch lasted 3 weeks. We notice no degradation in that time period. We also make our homemade "chorizo" and pan fry it and freez and store in the same way. We eat either of these for any meal of the day. Add some veggies and you are good to go for a quick meal. I make soups in large batches and freeze in mason jars as well. When I know time will be tight or a change of plans crops up... I'm prepared with quality food that is always gotten on sale! I refuse to pay full price for anything! That's why God invented freezers!

Years ago I had a Rival food seal-a-meal - it didn't vacuum seal all the air out, but with the wet cooked meats etc that didn't matter. And so I'd put my leftover cooked meats in it, and when I wanted to cook it, I just put the whole plastic thing in a pot of water and brought the water to a boil. The packages would be completely hot in like 5 or 10 minutes of being in the boiling water (my ex didn't like the idea of microwaves, so this is what we used.).

If it's only frozen for a week or two, you can probably get away with removing it from plastic and cooking in oven or skillet or whatever, but usually the freezing also dehydrates, so you would have to rehydrate - oil, water, stock, whatever... or could put the meat on a steamer insert and steam it over a pan of water (like if you have one of those stewers or cooking pans that has the lip at top to fit a steamer insert. Or even if you didn't and just had one of those metal collapsible steamers or bamboo steamer, just something that can hold your food up over the boiling water and be warmed up by steam. Lotsa ways to steam, it really doesn't matter much for reheating your food, which is what you want to do, so I'm mostly just mentioning the two types of utensils I have at home for steaming.

Proverbs 31:17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.

I bought a food saver machine . I use it to seal my mason jars when i make my salads and they last up 5 days . I was thinking of cooking some meat in the oven with just seasoning till the meat is cooked then sealing them and freezing it . Then when i come home in the evening i just finish cooking it with some greens or sauces in a wok . Any one have experience in freezing cooked meat . Some one suggested boiling it before instead of in the oven
