Today, I wanted to share with you a costly mistake I made recently (so you can avoid making the same mistake).
I bought pork chops last weekend to make a recipe I was going to share with you guys.
They ended up getting a foul odor because I left them in the refrigerator for too long.
I ended up throwing away $10 worth of pork chops. Which is not good for me.
What can I do to prevent this from happening again?
- If I don’t plan on using a certain type of meat within 2 to 3 days, I will put the meat in the freezer until I’m ready to use it.
- I will be more cautious on “sell by” dates for meat. Some stores sell meat at a discount because the “sell by” date is about to expire on that package of meat.
- If I plan on using the meat within 3 days, I will try to cook the meat as soon as possible.
- The meat I buy will be put in the coldest part of my refrigerator.
Here is an article with more information about meat storage:
