I have had some cuts of beef and pork in my freezer for two years, can I cook and eat them?
As long as the meat's been stored at a proper frozen temperature, there shouldn't be any food safety issue. Chances are it will suffer from freezer burn and some loss of texture and flavor, though. I've cooked meat this old, although I braised it or used it in soup. A nice, rich tomato based sauce or broth will do wonders for masking any loss of quality. (12/15/2009)

These sites will give you all the freezing information you will want on all foods. If your meat remained properly frozen, it is most likely still good just not very tasty. Freezer burned, and only good tasting for soups. Remove all the air from your package before sealing and double wrap it. This helps to stop freezer burning. (12/15/2009)
