How Far Ahead . . . ?

can I prepare beef before I serve it?  I love the Asian-Style Short Ribs recipe and have made it many times, always a day or two in advance (tastes better and it's easier to defat), but I wonder if I'll be stretching it too much if I prepare it Thursday and serve it Sunday.  Anyone know?  Thanks in advance!

You could always freeze it

You could always freeze it and then defrost.  Nonetheless, I really preferr the fresher food.
