How to Store Leftover Beef and Cabbage
While this recipe disappears fast, you might find that you have leftovers. If that is the case, you will want to move the leftovers, once they have cooled, to an airtight container or a bowl that you can wrap in plastic wrap. Then store the beef and cabbage leftovers in the refrigerator.
The leftovers will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
How to Reheat this Easy Taco Recipe
When you are ready to reheat the easy taco recipe, you can reheat it in the microwave or in the stove top in a skillet. If you are reheating the entire amount of leftovers, it is usually easier to reheat in a skillet.
If you are reheating individual servings, you might want to use the microwave for convenience.
Can Beef and Cabbage be Frozen
If you find that you have too many leftovers to eat before it spoils, or you want to make this as a freezer meal, you can certainly freeze it. You can store it in an airtight container or in a freezer bag.
I prefer the freezer begs because it lets me freeze it flat and I can write on the bag. I like to label the bag with what is in it and when it was made.
