You Know, those Walmart Plastic Meat Containers?

They are Summertime must have's!

Talk about "disposable" ....

I'm into Camping...
And these "meat trays" from Walmart are an excellent way to recycle and serve a everyday purpose....

I serve my Potato Salad, BBQ, Anything!, pot-luck dinners, etc...
I even put one in a Junk Drawer as an "organizer"......

What is your Best from your "Own Experience" Heloise?

How do you get them clean enough after they have had raw meat in them? I would worry about contamination.

These days when you go to WalMart and get meat it comes on one of two "boats" - styrofoam or hard (but thin) plastic.

Poultry, or anything processed "in house" such as steamed crab legs, boiled shrimp, raw hamburger, etc. will be on styrofoam - anything else pre-packaged from a supplier will come on the plastic trays. Flip them over and they will probably carry the Cryovac label. They are like the thin black plastic tray a TV dinner comes in.

The plastic trays are actually "top shelf" diswasher safe.

My source: my son who is Mgr of the seafood section of a WalMart .... and asst mgr of the "Butcher Block" meat counter.

Michael, are these the same type of containers you get when you buy dinner from Boston Market or a taco salad from Taco Bell?

mudbug - essentially the same I guess ... but I don't know the composition of the plastic Bostom Market or Taco Bell are using ... they may or may not hold up to dishwasher washing. Like I said - I had to call my son to get the story on the WalMart plastic trays.
