Freezing ribs

PrairieCloverJanuary 19, 2006

Hi,

I'm making some freezer meals for a family in my neighbourhood. I'm wondering about how to freeze ribs. Can I just take any ribs recipe, make it and then throw them into the freezer? Also how do you re-heat them after they are frozen? Can they be re-heated from a frozen state, or do they need to be thawed first? I did find a great slow-cooker recipe for ribs on allrecipes, so I'm wondering if, once they are done if I can freeze them. Thanks for the tips!

I can only offer my observations as I have never frozen ribs after cooking but I have purchased ready to warm up meats and they work out fine. (But I've stayed at a Holiday Inn, LOL) The longer time to heat if frozen would tend to dry them out before thawed I believe. If you freeze them without too much liquid, freeze, and then vacuum seal them it would probably minimize freezer burn if kept too long. I would thaw them before microwaving, however. I've frozen soups and foods with liquid but only problem is that it takes a long time to thaw out unless you prepare in container suitable for microwave so I plan ahead with these. Note that microwave meals are small portions and thus can be heated in a short time so keep this in mind. Hope this helps, you've probably figured this much out yourself. How do you fix your ribs?

Yes just cook them and then freeze them...wrap them in foil and they can go straight into the oven frozen....or unwrap and nuke...
