I do this all the time with different cuts of meats. I recently purchased these top sirloin filets for a meal, however, at the last minute I decided that the portion was large enough to make two plus meals for 2 people, meaning 4 single servings.
The first thing I did was to clean the filets from any visible fat. Then I took the larger portion and cut it into 4 steaks. I decided to make Bistec Encebollao (Onion smothered steaks) with half of the beef. So I smacked 4 filets to make them even more tender. (The Recipe and final dish coming up TOMORROW.)
Secondly, I took the smaller filet, cut it in thin strips, put them in a plastic bag and froze to make Sirloin Tips Stir Fry with red peppers, onion, garlic and broccoli over white rice later during the week. It all worked perfectly. It was so ridiculous to prep the beef for all these meals (total 4 meals) for a mere $10.11 so each meal cost was about $2.50 each.
