Flank Steak, specifically.
 
Just went to the garage to get the 3 pound package of flank steak out of the extra freezer.
 
Yep.. freezer burn.  Looks like it's just around the edges.
 
What do you do with freezer burned food?
 
I think my dogs will like it.

I'll cook it tomorrow.  Do you think they'll like it grilled?

I'd pressure cook it, cut off the extreme edges if necessary, and shred it. Make something like Ropa Vieja or the shredded meat submerged in a strong sauce.

I'll look at it closer today.  It might just be the edges.
 
I've never pressure cooked.  I must have one because the little cap thingy is in my catch-all kitchen drawer.  Just don't know where the rest of it is.  (I'm backwards)

Grind it up, cook it up, serve it mixed with rice, onion and vegies, topped with a gravy or not...It's edible sometimes tasty, and non-waste-full
