Storage Instructions

Most keto ground beef recipes can easily be stored and used to meal prep a week of dinners for those busy worknights.

To store leftovers, make sure to wrap your baking dishes in food wrap and keep them in the fridge for no more than 3 to 4 days.

If you want to keep your ground beef recipe for longer, it’s preferable to freeze it.

It’s crucial to know that ground beef shouldn’t be frozen twice. So if your meat was frozen prior to buying it or you put it in the freezer yourself, it might not be safe to freeze it again.

This is due to the fact that the first freeze destroyed all but the stronger bacteria, leaving them alone to colonize the meat again, rendering it potentially dangerous for our health.
