I bought a corned beef today for St. Patrick's Day, but my company had to move the date to the weekend. So instead of cooking it on Tuesday, I will be making it on Saturday. Should I freeze the meat, or is it ok to leave it in the fig until Saturday?

Re: Refrigerator or Freezer?

Each bag of corned beef is stamped with a date, usually about2 months in advance- if it is a bagged one, I am sure you are safe, if you bought it at the butcher shop and it's wrapped in paper, then freeze it...

It's probably fine for quite awhile in the fridge. Smith's had them for sale for $2.99 so I bought a couple more. I tossed them all in the freezer. Tomorrow night I'll take them out to cook on St. Patricks.
