So I was in a local supermarket and they had a great deal on choice strip roasts. Being the meat hoarder I am, I naturally asked for the whole piece. I asked the butcher if I could just buy the whole piece in the cryovac and he said.. "Why would you do that? I'll trim some of the fat off for you and charge you the post trimmed weight. Most markets won't do that so I took him up on the offer. So now my problem. I want to cook part of this for Easter Sunday dinner, but that is now 5 days away. I usually don't like keeping raw meat in the fridge that long before freezing. Will vaccuum sealing it help prolong the shelf life? Or am I fine leaving it in the fridge as the butcher wrapped it? Freezing and then thawing it seems like it would take too long and be too much trouble.
