AIBU to make a cottage pie out of Sunday's leftovers and then freeze it? The beef was not frozen prior to it's roasting on Sunday. Sorry for posting in for the traffic as don't want to waste the morning cooking something that will end up wasted anyway! Thx!

I don't think i would. Im a right fairy when it comes to meat and salmonella and food poisoning etc though 😂😂

I'm usually pretty stringent too but the sheer volume of left over meat this week is grating on my conscience and there's only so much I & the kids can get through before it goes off... Thanks for replying Ravioli. Anyone out there think it would be ok?....if not the cat's having gourmet...urgh, what a waste!

I would do this without thinking twice smile

Absolutely fine especially beef, go for it.

I would. And have. I am still alive. Apparently. (There are days when I wonder if I am!)

I would and have done so for decades. According to my dh I'm trying to murder him slowly hmm but I've not manage to poison anyone yet. Just make sure its very hot before serving.

Freeze the beef as is, then defrost and cook shepherds pie when you want it? Then you are only freezing once and reheating. I think?!

That's fine if the meat was previously frozen raw

Will be absolutely fine.

It's never been frozen just roasted? Can't you just slice and freeze in portions for future beefwiches or freeze in portions with some mash for quick meals (add gravy and peas at the time). [lazy emoticon]. Disclaimer : no food hygiene training .

I do it all the time.

Checked with dh (phd in this kind of stuff). He says should be fine if the beef was well cooked and reheated on defrosting
