Beef: Cut or cook
Cut the beef into cubes for stews or strips for stir-fry. The more cutting you can do before the meat hits the freezer, the quicker your meals will come together. An alternative is to buy a roast that’s big enough for Sunday dinner, plus pulled pork sandwiches for lunch on Monday, plus meat to add to a stir-fry on Tuesday. Don’t worry about not being able to eat it all. It is always an advantage to have cooked meat in the freezer.
