Your way of reading the OP's question is not the only way Vera. others read that post and saw that the OP WAS asking about how to freeze meat the correct way.

Time to get back on topic now.

I, however, was not asking how to properly freeze meat. And I agree, indeed, it is time to get back on topic. I never thought to leave the topic. I wil, however, take a conversation where it leads, especially when others address me, directly, or quote me.

Well my original post was not really pointed in any real direction past can it be done. Which has been answered that it can and steps provided on how to do so which is excellent as I now know I can either vacuum pack it or wrap it tightly in cling wrap and bag that in the freezer.

So I am happy.

The reason I asked was because sometimes we go out and buy a roll of scotch fillet and have it cut up to 1" thick steaks. This usually leaves left over steaks that I don't cook right away.

Thank you for all of the great advice.

Pacanis, you don't know what a potato ricer is? I have one and wouldn't be without mine. Use it for all sorts of things, not just for potatoes. Do a Google image search for one. You've more than likely seen one.

Use it to squish eggs for egg salad, squash cooked or frozen spinach to release the water, etc.

Yes, a FoodSaver might be a big initial outlay of cash but I think it is worth it if you can afford it. I use mine for not only meats, but also garden veg like green beans and corn on the cob, bread, and leftovers. WHen I make my cabbage rolls I usually make about 4 dozen, we eat about 1 and I seal and freees the rest. They taste just as good.

After looking at a few, I honestly would have to say that the potato ricer is one thing I can do without.
Now, something that cubes potatoes into 1/8"-1/4" pieces I need. Just ask my now healed thumb
