  • I usually use ziploc freezer bags! I also usually do it in 1 pound portions...because that is what most recipes call for!

  • I use ziploc freezer bags. And I make sure to get as much air out as possible. I always buy the family packs of ground beef because you save so much money!

  • I wrap it in saran wrap, then a freezer bag NOT with the fancy zipper but a regular ziploc bag. Or if you have a vaccum seal, those are great.

  • I use a vacuum sealer. My goal is to get my chest freezer almost completely stocked with meat, and vacuum sealed lasts longer. The only other thing that goes in the chest freezer is veggies. The small freezer is for fruits, breakfast foods (homemade pancakes, waffles, etc.), and dessert stuff. The breakfast stuff also gets vacuum sealed.

  • For pork chops, chicken, tenderloin- I use foil, then a Ziploc bag (buy them in bulk at Sam's Club) When I freeze venison, I use freezer paper-tape it, then put into a Ziploc bag.
