The refrigerator is the most important invention in the history of food. Without it, we wouldn't have the luxury of keeping a carton of milk or fresh produce for longer than a few days. We wouldn't have meat that we can freeze and store to cook much later.
When planning your meals, make them days, weeks, or even months ahead and just put it in your freezer. Meat, when frozen completely and properly, can last for months in the freezer! All you have to do is make sure that you freeze it so that it's ready-to-cook when you bring it out.
The first thing you need to remember is you need to salt your meats before prepping them if you intend to fry them later on. Once frozen, the meat will absorb the salt but will preserve it. Also, when thawing, it will help draw out more moisture from the meat as it does that you can blot dry. This will result in not only a crispier skin once it's fried but wonderfully seasoned meat, too.
How to make freezer meals that you can prepare now and fry later
These ready-to-cook freezer meats are the perfect meal ideas for days when you can't think of doing more than just frying. Sure, we're not suggesting to eat fried food all the time, but it's good to have these in your freezer for when you have little time to cook, or need to prolong your meats freezer life.
