I have defrosted a load of meat - chicken and beef - cooked it up in different sauces to be put back in the freezer for future dinners etc.
DH thinks we will all get food poisoning from defrosted/reheated/refrozen food. I think it will be fine.
Would you/have you ever done this?

Apologies for the weirdly worded title - it made sense in my head!

It's fine to freeze raw meat, defrost it and​ cook it and then freeze it again cooked.

You'll be fine as long as it's cooked through and stored safely until it gets frozen.

It's fine if cooked. You shouldn't defrost and refreeze without cooking as any bacteria can multiply and are not then killed off by the heat process.

It will be fine as long as the meat you defrosted was raw.

I've been doing this for twenty years and have never had food poisoning. As long as it's defrost-cook-freeze and not just defrost-freeze then it's all fine. smile

Yes, meat was raw when frozen.

Thanks for your replies smile

Absolutely fine to do this

Yep. No problem there

Yes it's fine, you've changed the state of the meat by cooking it so you can freeze it again without risk.
