  • No. You can cook it, then freeze the cooked meat, but don't re-freeze it. I suggest going out and getting your main ingredient and cooking it today or tomorrow, or making a different meal with it. But do not re-freeze it. Oh, and it's not dethawed, it's thawed.

  • Not unless you want to become sick from eating it.

  • The way you make it sound, you did not thaw it in the refrigerator. If you thawed it on the counter, then you cannot refreeze it. If you had thawed it in the fridge, you could have refroze it.

  • Cook and enjoy or freeze. Do not refreeze.

  • I don't think it's a good idea. I would just cook it one way or another and then freeze it at this point if you aren't ready to eat it today.

  • I was always told that meat that has thawed to room temperature should not be refrozen.

  • Put it in the crockpot, with some kind of soup let it cook all day and then freeze it.
