I just used some flannery blend to make meatballs. Everyone in our family thought that the flavor was awesome.

That meat has been in our garage stand up freezer since July 1 2019.

And on the thawing front, sous vide is your friend. I set it to 36 deg and stuff defrosts very quickly. Or i have items like preseasoned pork chops or rib eye that i can go straight from the freezer to sous vide. Put in the water bath at lunch and then hit the grill when i get home from work.

Found another one and Here’s the meat in question. Crazy I’ve forgotten about these somehow. One of them has a price sticker that says 05-16! The ice on them is on the outside of the package.
Throw it in the gumbo?

I wouldn’t hesitate to use it. From https://www.foodsafety.gov/food-safety- ... age-charts:

“The guidelines for freezer storage are for quality only—frozen foods stored continuously at 0 °F or below can be kept indefinitely.”
