Freezing a Veal with pocket

I freeze food successfully, but have never frozen a raw veal roast that is stuffed with an uncooked challah stuffing. Is this possible?Safe?

  1. Possible? Yes. Advisable? No. Stuffing should generally be cooked as soon as possible after being inserted in the meat/poultry. Depending on your recipe the challenge might suffer from ice crystals and I might not trust the raw eggs through the freeze thaw roast cycle. Your home freezers does not flash freeze like commercial operations.

      I got through to butcher at Pomegranate , and he said its alright to freeze raw with stuffing. Will defrost in frig and bake fresh on Yom Tov!

    2. i would sooner cook it and freeze it than stuff it and freeze it raw
