Things to Keep in Mind When Defrosting Aliyans Meat
How meat is defrosted is just as important as how it's frozen. Here are some tips for how to safely defrost meat before use:
1. Never let meat defrost on the kitchen counter - Though it's tempting to let meat defrost this way, it can also be unsafe. Bacteria can grow quickly at room temperature.
2. Defrost meat in cold water or in the refrigerator - When you're ready to prepare our meat, put it in the refrigerator for use the next day, or use a cold water bath. For more details, please have a look at the USDA Guidelines for safe defrosting.
