Can cooked meat be refrozen?

Answer

Cooked meats can be refrozen. The faster the product is frozen the better the quality the meat will be when it is unthawed again for consumption. Ideally, food with a thickness of two inches should be completely frozen within two hours. If the food takes longer than two hours, ice crystals may form. When the food is unthawed these crystals will turn to water making the meat soggy or less flavorful. To achieve shorter freezing times, it is best to store meats in a freezer that is not opened frequently. The more the freezer is opened, the more unstable the temperature will be.
