The raison d'etre of this website is to provide you with hard scientific information which may help you make informed decisions in your quest for health (so far I have blogged concise summaries of over 1,500 scientific studies and have had three books published).

My research is mainly focused on the effects of cholesterol, saturated fat and statin drugs on health. If you know anyone who is worried about their cholesterol levels and heart disease, or has been told to take statin drugs you could send them a link to this website, and to my statin or cholesterol or heart disease books.

Flash Freeze Method for Steaks and Beef Patties

Omaha Steaks 4 - 8 Steak Combinations
Food Mall: Steaks
Let your cooked meat rest on a cutting board to room temperature. Cut in half to roughly 8 ounces or a little less or you can freeze them whole it won't make a difference.

Then line a cutting board that will fit in your freezer. You may use a tray, plate or whatever you have. The trick is to use wax paper. You could use parchment.

Then simply put it carefully in the freezer and let it freeze over night. Then place the frozen goodies in a zip-lock storage bag and the meat is ready for action on a moments notice.

The next day take out the frozen goodies. They look dry, but they are moist and delicious the next time you eat them with no freezer taste at all.

Place these Life Saving Goodies in a Zip-Lock bag and store them back in the freezer for future use.
