I was looking in the freezer for something to eat and found a package of pork chops dated 3-5-2009. There were wrapped tight and still look good. I have them thawing now.

Would you still cook and eat them?



Anyone want to join? Bring a dish!

central - east central Minnesota -

I would crookpot them . . .. they very well could be pretty dry (dehydrated), so will need some assistance to make'em chew bettter the leather. A can of mushroom soup and some vegtables or sauerkraut with them in crookpot with seasoning . .  .. . .

You won't have any safety concerns but definately some quality issues. They say with meat that's been frozen a really long time you should cut it up and mix it into something else (don't eat whole). Or like the above poster at least cook them slowly. They often recommend that you make the meat into a stirfry/soup/stew etc. Let us know how they turn out!! :)

I'd make chili with them.

I would toss them in the garbage unless you are starving.

The recommended storage time for frozen pork is 6 months. They probably won't kill you but I'll bet they are dried out and freezer burned.

You didn't say deep freeze or fridge/freezer.

In a deep freeze most of the mean I eat is older then a year, can't tell a difference until year 3 or 4 and it starts getting a little bit funny, but definitely still edible.

In a deep freeze, pork stays safe to eat for quit a while but in about 6 months, the taste will change dramatically

But I suggest you try them first by themselves before you go buying a lot of expensive stuff to mix in to make essentially a "Goulash".

The problem with meats and especially pork is that the fats absorb odors probably a long time before the meat or fat degrades in itself.

So, the quality of the meat will depend on any odors present in the deep freeze.

Ruined some real good fresh pork chops by following a "Good Housekeeping" tip to "just put your paint roller in the freezer overnight " to keep from having to clean it between paint coats. That was back in the day of Real Paint with oil base!

I cringe every time I hear of some tip to put birds for taxidermy "in the freezer" , likewise with clothes you have worn on the road "to freeze out any bedbugs".

Food Freezers are for food. Putting anything else in can and will ruin your food!

But if you have used any common sense, I suspect you have some real good pork chops there.

I actually prefer my pork chops in the crock pot. We brown em and throw them in overnight with cream of mushroom.
