PS – We did find some tips to quickly defrost meat for dinner from Real Simple magazine: “This quick-thaw method, preferred by the Real Simple test kitchen, is the gentlest technique and takes 15 to 30 minutes. Fill a large bowl with cold water (resist the temptation to use hot or you’ll encourage the growth of bacteria, as well as“cook” the outside of the meat). Place the meat in a resealable plastic bag and the bag in the water, fully submerging it. Let sit, changing the water with fresh cold water as it warms. Once the pieces are defrosted enough to be separated, pull them apart. (The rest of the thawing will go more quickly.) Continue until the meat is fully thawed.” Click HERE for the full article.
