The study was conducted to evaluate the characteristics of Nuhbiani qualities with the different cooking, reheating methods and storage conditions. Cooking and reheating methods were used with pan, microwave and their combinations. Precooked samples were stored for 0, 1, 4, 7, 15 days in the refrigerator and for 15, 30 days in the freezer. TBA value, shear value by rheometer and sensory attributes in rancidity, hardness, juiciness and overall acceptability were measured. There was no significant difference between cooking, reheating methods in TBA values. Lower values in TBA were noted in the Nuhbiani of frozen storage as compared with that of refrigerated storage. There is a tendency that TBA values were increased as the storage time extended during the refrigeration. Shear values were more increased by microwave cooking and microwave reheating than other methods showing harder texture. Results from sensory evaluation of rancidity, hardness, juiciness and overall acceptability show that there were no significant differences between storage methods, among storage periods and cooking, reheating methods.
