Is it possible to have too much blood/ liquid in the sealed bag?

I just vacuum sealed a whole boneless rib eye, but I'm wondering if I left too much liquid in the bag? Should I open and release the liquid and re-seal?

Gotta wonder about where and how you purchased that "chunk-o-cow"! LOL

Was it still in a cry-o-vac bag? If so, then did you drain it at least some before sliding the meat into a UMAi Dry® bag?

I want to help...but I've just got to get to bed! Talk to you in the morning!

Haha. I got it from work. I'm fortunate enough to work for a meat company. It was originally in a cryovac bag. I dumped as much liquid as I could but didn't see the rest of what was in the bag until after I vacuum sealed.

OK...if I were you then since you already know where the meat came from...assuming it was still sealed in the cryovac bag when you brought it home...then in a couple more days, I would cut a SMALL hole in one corner and let that moisture drain out for like say an hour. Then place a good piece of sealing tape over that hole.
