A neighbor of ours recently passed away. Her relatives brought us most of the unopened goods from her pantry. Then they brought us 3 boxes of frozen beef and this is where I need some help. There is a large selction of steaks, roasts, hamburger, pork chops, and five whole chickens. Most of the meat is undated. There are several packages of excellent steaks still in the original packages with very old "sell by dates" (i.e. 5-6 years old). Everything looks good.
I need to know how I can tell if this frozen meat is still good?
Will cooking this meat destroy any harmful bacteria and any other bad guys?
Please send me email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the help.
