Quick Answers

 

 

I have some corned silver side that I have defrosted and cooked. Can I freeze the cooked meat again?


Yes, you can refreeze cooked meat (in the U.S. we just call this Corned Beef. I like the sound of Corned Silver Side though - makes it sound much more exotic!). The texture may suffer a bit, but it will be perfectly safe. It is usually best to reheat cooked products to 160F (71C) before eating.
