Freezing food is an incredibly convenient way to save it, but thawing it is such a hassle?
Before we get to thawing in food, you should know some of the best practices to freeze food. If it's not frozen right in the first place, the thawing process will be inconsistent and there's a higher chance of developing bacteria. The Kitchen claims to have a foolproof method that keeps frozen meats good for three months. When packaging meats for the freezer, the most important thing is to protect them from exposure to air. Wrap meats very tightly in either plastic wrap or freezer paper.
Here are the best and quickest ways to thaw just about any food!
Just keeping your frozen food out on the countertop for a long time is asking for trouble. But it's a common cooking mistake that you can fix easily:
Remember, the "danger zone" for bacterial growth in food is between 40°F and 140°F (5°C and 60°C), and sitting right in the middle of that is "room temperature," around 68°-70°F (20°-22°C). A couple of hours at room temperature will certainly make sure that the meat is thawed, but it's a field day for bacterial growth as well, especially as the deeper parts of your cut begin to come up to temp while the outsides have been room temperature. If you are going to thoroughly cook it later, there's a good chance that bacteria like E. Coli will get destroyed in the process. But as a general safety practice, it's better to avoid thawing at room temperature. So what are your alternatives?
