i have the greatest secreat for defrosting food much quicker.and that is,take what ever meat/chicken that you want to defrost and place it in a non-stick teflon pan and you will be amazed how fast your meat will defrost.i learned this trick on my own and its something about the heat in the teflon pans.THIS DOES WORK.

That sounds like a good idea. I usually just put it on a plate and wait, but this would be much faster. But then don't you have to take it out, and mix it with the spices, oil the pan, etc. afterwards?

you just take what ever meat you want to defrost and put it in the non stick teflon pan and make sure you do both sides.once its defrosted than you can season or what ever you want to do to the meat.

Wow... that's a great tip Angels. I'm going to have to try that because when you're just cooking for one, you often only use part of a pack of meat. Thank you for sharing and Brightest Blessings.

Gee, thanks for the hint! I'll definitely have to try that tomorrow when I'm getting the meat out to defrost for supper. I never heard of that idea before, I like that better than trying to nuke/defrost it.

yea its much better than nuking it,somtimes nuking it it will start to cook the meat.so just take what ever you are having,take out of the package and put it right in the pan.make sure you flip it when in pan so you get both sides.this is great and it saves time.

I know what you mean about nuking it to thaw it...it almost always starts it cooking a little bit. We decided we're going to try this tonight...I purposefully left my meat in the freezer instead of taking it out to thaw this morning just so we can ckeck it out. I have a hunch this is going to turn out to be one of those valuable hints I'm going to use a lot. Living on the farm here, we often have a whole cow processed at one time, so everything is frozen into individualized packages (about 150-250 pound of meat at a time.) Since everything is frozen, every meal that uses beef has got to be thawed before cooking. Thanks again!

Hi. Wow, that is amazing... There are times when Ive forgotten to take something out of the freezer, so I will run some hot water into the sink and sit the meat, still sealed in its in plastic, inside the sink of hot water, and I thought that done wonders lol... Thanks for the great tip...
