Thawing Frozen Meat

There’s no need to fear thawing meat! With knowledge and careful planning, you can thaw meat safely and effectively. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Plan ahead! Thawing meat takes time, so plan and allow enough time for the process.
  2. Use cold water. Hot water can cook the meat, which is not what we want! When thawing meat in water, use cold water rather than hot or warm water.
  3. Do it slowly. Microwaving or using other high-heat methods to thaw meat can cause it to be harsh or dry out.

  • Oven. To bake frozen meat in the oven, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place the frozen meat in an oven-safe dish. Bake the meat for about 30 minutes or until it’s cooked through.
  • Pan-Fry. To pan-fry frozen meat, heat some oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the frozen meat—Cook the meat for about five minutes per side or until it’s cooked through.

Which method you choose will depend on the type of meat you’re cooking and your personal preferences. Experiment and see which one you like best!
