HOW MANY times can you FREEZE A STEAK?

Today was a very important experiment for me. I need to find out how many times I can freeze a steak before it's bad! I like to save money so I always buy steaks in bulk and freeze them, sometimes I let the steak defrost and end up not cooking that day, can we re-freeze it and if so how many times can it be done? Today we find out!

    Important! NEVER...NEVER let your steak get to ROOM TEMP! I cover this in the end of the video. But, if you don't watch until the end you will miss important information. Steaks must ALWAYS REMAIN in the refrigerator, IF NOT you encourage bacteria growth specially if steaks are at room temp. Love you guys!

    I want you to test defrosting methods.. slow methods and fast methods.. like microwave, room temp, hot water, cold water, etc

    would be nice to see if there´s any difference from a fresh steak that has never been frozen and a steak that has been frozen once.

    @Simon Park yes they will grow but not sigmificantly if you refreeze it immediately after the defrost is done.

  11. Aimless Idiot

    Aimless Idiotחודש לפני

    I think the 3 days of wet aging that happened each time when you left the steak hang in the refrigerator caused the deterioration, instead of the actual thawing and freezing. Steak 3x had 9 days of wet aging and steak 4x had 12 days! I reckon that if you refreeze each steak within 24 hours after defrosting that the increase in deterioration between steaks 1x and 4x would have been negligible. Maybe something to test in a new video? 😁👍

    I wonder how many times our steaks have been frozen by the time we get it here in Asia. We get Prime and Choice here but I'm guessing it's at least 2-3x frozen. Up to experimenting on that Guga? Freezing for the weeks it gets transported via sea, before it even gets to the distributor before it gets to the stores. Hope you can try this out in actual time Guga!

    Water-based molecules separate between the 4° and the 0°, thus, causing the tenderness and flavor changes as that water will just evaporate leaving something similar to pores behind

    So after watching a couple of Guga videos (but not this one) I bought some A5 Wagyu which came frozen. I practically gave myself a heart attack trying to cut the frozen roast into steaks with a hacksaw. Live and learn. I could have defrosted and refrozen without significant change. Thanks for the info!

    I do not know if I like Chris he doesn't give the right vibe of the channel. For me his demeanor seems rude and unappreciative of the chance he has for the experiment itself. It is like he doesn't care about the experiment itself he just wants to eat the steak. I understand wanting to eat the steak but please remember why you are behind the camera and not in the house with the rest of the family members and guests just eating.

    2:55 frozen again slowly... huge mistake. If you freeze, do it fast. Slow freezing results in big ice crystals that cut trough the cell structure of your meat, that's the reason you loose flavor, juice and weight.

    As an Old Meat Cutter, I want you guys to understand something. Don't Ever Refreeze Steaks...Ever!! "Between 0°C and 4°C (or 32°F and 40°F), most bacteria will survive but will not multiply quickly. Water freezes at 0°C (or 32°F). Between 0°C and −18°C (or 0°F and 32°F), most bacterial will survive but not grow." The simple fact is the only time you will not get Bacteria grow in meats is when the steaks/meats are below freezing. Doing the method in this video means you are letting the Bacteria grow for 3 days per thaw. That means the last steak with 4 freezes has had 12 days of Bacteria grow.
