Re-wrap your meat

Many people bring fresh meat home and just stash it in the refrigerator or freezer in whatever container it came in. That’s usually a slab of styrofoam covered with saran wrap. But styrofoam is by no means airtight and saran wrap punctures easily. Furthermore, the meat is usually sitting in its own juices, the moisture from which can cause it to go bad faster. When you get your meat home, remove it from the store wrapping, pat it dry, and store it in an airtight container for the fridge. If it’s going in the freezer, pat it dry and put it in an airtight freezer bag.
