The answer is “Massage” Grasshopper.
Spend the time to massage the bag down into contact with the meat. This will help drive out the air before vacuum sealing……and make a “sealing” contact with the bag and the meat. Also….make sure no liquid has touched the bag where it is going to make contact with the sealing strip on the vacuum machine. My machine works best with the sealing control set at “4”
Fold under the extra part of the bag after you have vacuum sealed so the weight of the meat helps maintain the seal. Gently put on a rack…..and don’t touch it for 14 to 21 days.
