Cooking Freezer Burned Meat

When meat has freezer burn, is it safe to simmer it down for a soup stock or should I throw it out?

If the meat is not badly freezer burned, trim the burned areas and use it. I have done so with no ill effects. If badly burned, or if you decide not to use it, you could offer the frozen meat on Freecycle. People who feed their animals a raw diet would love to have it. I've done this too. (05/18/2010)

Do not eat it. Federal safe food guidelines say no. (05/18/2010)

As long as you originally froze it by the original "sell by date" and it has not been thawed even once since then it is completely safe to eat according to the FDA and simply won't be as tasty. I am not sure if you would want to use it to make soup stock though because the flavor is degraded once freezer burned, but you can use it to bulk up soup or skillet recipes. Please be sure to thaw it in the refrigerator though. (05/18/2010)

The trouble with anything that's freezer-burnt is that a lot of times it has a bad taste to it. (05/20/2010)
