So I was at a seafood place buying.. well, seafood, and the lady there was telling me about a way to preserve frozen meat (or fish) without having to buy a vacuum sealer.
Basically, after you have portioned the meat, wrap it tightly in cling wrap (or saran wrap... whatever you prefer) then place it in a good freezer bag (I can always find Ziplock Freezer Bags coupons and deals) and freeze until needed.
The picture of the meat below was frozen about a month or so ago. It has only a little frost on it, no freezer burn, and the color change thing I was complaining about in Bacon Cheeseburgers is NOT A PROBLEM! :) Also, defrosted like a breeze.
