'fresh' meat

went round a mates recently, he's got about 6kg of rump steak for a tenner i think it was from the market which is obviously dirt cheap qhixh he gets pretty regularly

thing is the meat although he says is fresh, it's almost certain it's stuff that was frozen previously and has now defrosted (well i'd assume for the prices, likewise with the chicken)

with steak is the risk of food poisoning such a risk? As obviously i'll be re-freezing the stuff.. i'm avoiding the chicken but tempted by the cheapness of the steak for it's quality!

stay away or take advantage?

    i'm buying meat and chicken from the market and its great. no problem with quality.

    I buy 2 filets for a tenner each (the whole long bit...) chicken breasts are great. Works out a quarter of what it is in the supermarket and seems fresher too. I go to Kempton Park market on thursdays if any1 is round the Kingston to Staines area.

    Last week I got around £60 in total and stuck it in the freezer. Am going round there again soon.

    You can always cook it and then freeze it

    Personally I don't take any chances even if you can refreeze beef.
    I always cook it and then freeze it even if it has thawed.

    I NEVER refreeze chicken and make sure to wash it thoroughly and salt it before cooking.
    I've never had any food poisioning.

    I like to cook all the meat for the week on Sunday if I'm going to be really busy.
    Fajitas, tacos, burrritos, spaghetti and meat balls, stuff peppers, stir fry, stew, stroganoff, cabbage/bean soup (has meat in it)

    cheers all, i think i may just do the preferred option buy it, cook some of it and keep it frozen and te other bit keep it cool in the fridge just for a couple of days ready to cook and eat straight away
