    OK so I was asked to cook a Pork Loin for Christmas, was gonna use RaceyB's Pineapple recipe and pulled it out of the freezer on Tuesday and put it in fridge so it would be thawed in time to cook

    Now my lovely wife calls me and says never mind...you are gonna cook it for New Years Day.


    So my question is do y'all think it will keep in the fridge until next week?

    If its cryo-vac'd then yes. If not I'd cook it. And buy another one.
    Hope this helps

    vaccum sealed = cryovac

    Cook it, cube half of it, set up two fondue pots--one with bbq sauce, the other with a salsa/cheese dip. Watch a football game while indulging.[​IMG]

    Slice the other half into 1/4" slices and put back in the freezer for future use (sandwiches, quick meal for company, etc.). You may want to put it in several packages if you don't think the whole piece would be consumed in one session.

    Well....that's what I'd do right now, anyway.

    You could slow cook it in the crock and make pulled pork.
