How to store my meat in my refrigerator?
« on: February 22, 2012, 10:56:22 am »
Hi, I usually wrap my meat up with pastic wrap and store it for 3-4 day. It alway has a foul smell after. Is it still safe to eat it raw? Should I leave it uncover on a plate next time? Please some one help me on this. Here in California, grass fed beef are really pricey. 

Thanks
Jimmy

To me, meat that spoils while wrapped in plastic tastes foul and has the potential to develop lethal clostridium botulinum levels, whereas meat that's stored in glass or open air is less likely to become foul tasting or pathogen-loaded.

find a way to hang it, or lay it on suspended wire racks.  You'll never go back.

We slice the meat thin then lay it on racks. It dries out and tastes excellent.

Hanging meat is one of the most dense ways to store meat. Hang liver too.  It drips though, so use a catch basin.  It's totally gets yummy as it gets a slight tang to it, and when sliced thinly and layered with fat,  well, you could serve it as appetizers at any high end social affair, as long you didn't broadcast what it was.

My fridge is just a couple degrees above freezing.  And then about a week before it's got that tang.  But you can taste it along the way to see at what stage you like it.  You can also lay it on a plate and flip it over every day or more to get air to all sides,  but hanging seems to be a better way to go.  Just look at GS's pics of the meat shop in his town.

van,

Does Dry Aged meat has the same effects like that of high meats?

No, at least dried, aged meat has never worked for me.
“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

Yeah, I'd agree it doesn't any where near the amount of bacteria..  It just tastes and digests fine.  Eventually it will dry out like a shoe, instead of disintegrate due to bacterial digestion.

i found several thin wood stick and place them on top of a glass cassarole dish. then lay the slab on like a rack.
Give it to us raw, and wriggling. You keep nasty chips.

I like that.  Perhaps bamboo would work for this.

My SS wire oven rack just fits in my fridge. I was able to supend (tie) it to the light shelf at the top.  then with S hooks, get the big ones (1 1/2  - 2 inch )  you can hook the meat and hang it on the wire rack.   For those who can't seem to hang it you could make ( if you're handy) a hardwood or aluminum ( out of angle stock )  stand  and run SS wire through the top of it.  Worth doing, for hanging meat is really so much better than anything I've tried.  Have to admit,  it does look like a meat locker when you're done though.  I hang a hand towel in front of the whole thing so that my daughter doesn't get grossed out.
