Can you refreeze beef?


Question: Can you refreeze beef?


Yes, if you've thawed beef in the refrigerator (steak, hamburger, etc.), it can be refrozen safely, and with minimal loss of quality. To preserve freshness, always refreeze your beef within three days of thawing.

For more information about refreezing foods, refer to the USDA website:

USDA: Beef from Farm to Table
