Tips
  • How long do cooked veal chops last in the fridge? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions — refrigerate veal chops within two hours of cooking.
  • To maximize the shelf life of cooked veal chops for safety and quality, refrigerate the veal chops in shallow airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
  • Properly stored, cooked veal chops will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
  • To further extend the shelf life of cooked veal chops, freeze them; freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or freezer wrap.
  • How long do cooked veal chops last in the freezer? Properly stored, they will maintain best quality for 2 to 3 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — cooked veal chops that have been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How long do cooked veal chops last after being frozen and thawed? Cooked veal chops that has been thawed in the fridge can be kept for an additional 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator before cooking; veal chops that were thawed in the microwave or in cold water should be eaten immediately.
  • How long do cooked veal chops last at room temperature? Bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F; cooked veal chops should be discarded if left for more than 2 hours at room temperature.
  • How to tell if cooked veal chops are bad? The best way is to smell and look at the veal chops: signs of bad veal chops are a sour smell and a slimy texture; discard any veal chops with an off smell or appearance, do not taste first.
