How Do You Defrost Beef Safely?



Did you know that if beef is not properly defrosted, it can affect the taste, texture and (critically) expose you to potentially dangerous pathogens?


When you're defrosting frozen beef, it's better not to do it at room temperature. Harmful bacteria and pathogens may grow quickly on the beef if you do. Instead, place your beef in the refrigerator to defrost where it can do so safely and slowly. Allow up to two days for a large cut of beef to defrost, and be sure to place it on a plate on the lowest shelf so that juices don't drip onto other foods in your fridge.


Try to avoid using a microwave, but if you do use the correct "defrost" setting and time.
