​IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) BLAST FROZEN PRODUCTS; (Source WIKIPEDIA) BLAST FROZEN or FLASH FREEZING refers to the process in various industries whereby objects are quickly frozen by subjecting them to cryogenic temperatures. For example, flash freezing is used in the food industry to quickly freeze perishable food items. In this case, food items are subjected to temperatures well below water's melting/freezing point (32°F or 0°C), causing the water inside the foods to freeze in a very short period without forming large crystals, thus avoiding damage to cell membranes. In easy words, blast frozen product quality nearly as good as fresh product once it thaws.

STORAGE
Keep frozen -18°C, cook immediately a maximum of 2 days after thawing.

BEFORE COOKING
The best way to defrost frozen meat is to slowly place them in the chiller (fridge) overnight. Before grilling / cooking, take them out of the fridge till fully defrosted, having reached room temperature or not cold anymore (keep them in the packaging bag to prevent dryness at the surface and to keep naughty flies and geckos away.

AVERAGE TIME TO FULLY DEFROSTED FROZEN MEAT HAVING REACHED ROOM TEMPERATURE (not cold anymore);

  • Steak cuts 2-3 hours
  • Whole cut meat 3-5kg 4-8 hours
  • Lamb carcass 13-15 kg need a good whole day


DEFROSTING MEAT WITH A MICROWAVE IS NOT RECOMMENDED! Why? because microwaving the frozen meat actually makes it partly cooked especially at the surface and you will lose the juice. For fast defrosting; without removing from the plastic, soak the meat in cold water or rinse it under running water until it is completely thawed. Cook immediately after melting completely.

DO NOT REFREEZE DEFROSTED MEAT! Why? If it thaws and refreezes, this will be compromised and molds will grow on it which are harmless although it's not a good look and tastes no good.

HOW LONG CAN WE KEEP FROZEN MEAT AND STILL BE EDIBLE? If constantly below -18 C, years! But better to cook it as soon as possible, maximum a month from the purchase. If the meat vacuumed plastic is torn frozen meat in the freezer they tend to get freezer burnt, will form ice on the surface and break the meat fibers this will cause dryness.
