In the thread a few days ago we talked about freezing meat in its marinade. At that time, I froze some Vietnature ribs in the marinade. Look forward to trying the final marinated/froze/thawed version.[p]My wife found a nice new Korean market that has spectacular produce, and fresh fish and meats. She picked up a huge pack of beef short ribs, cut Korean style, and I marinated up a whole bunch (see new recipes from last July, Korean Beef, Bulgoki). [p]Anywho, I split them up into 3 ziplocks, marinated for 8 hours, and froze 2 of them. Cooked up the third bag for dinner! They were cut pretty thin, (1/4 inch), but instead of searing, I cooked them at about 300, direct with hickory chips. Let them go 15 minutes in the smoke, and flipped. There were pools of juice on top when I flipped.[p]Then I let temp increase to 400, and seared them up at the finish. Kind of backwards from a hot sear, then a slow dwell, but they were good.[p]Also, there is something special about hickory smoke. Especially with pork and beef. Yum.[p]I will post results after I try the frozen version.[p]Eat Bulgoki, and have a great night.

    Nature Boy,[p]Hickory smoke has a fullness and a mellow flavor that just seems to blend nicely with just about everything (that is why it is the most popular smoking wood). I use it often and like to combine it with other woods. Smoke is only a spice as far as flavoring the meal, it is just added later and in a different way.[p]Please remember that as the temperature drops, marination slows and stops once everything freezes. Marination slowly starts again as temps rise above freezing. You can store a meat in a marinade for several months in the freezer without actually having the marinade work on the meat. I like to marinate for the desired time and then freeze. Anything pulled from the freezer is then ready to cook.[p]Ain't it fun to experiment?[p]Spin

    Yeah. I realize it won't marinate while frozen. But 8 hours before hand, and then again the entire time it thaws. Should be good. It is a lot of fun to experiment!.[p]NB
