We hope you are having a very nice summer, and enjoying your beef from our family’s farm!
We would like to remind all our beef customers to thaw your beef completely before unwrapping your cuts from the butcher paper to cook. By thawing your beef first, you avoid any butcher paper clinging to the frozen meat.
Here are some of the best practices to thawing frozen beef:
- Thaw meat overnight in the fridge, if you’re that planned out and on top of things.
- Many of us in our family are raising young children and can easily get distracted, so thawing frozen beef in cool water is a thawing method we frequently use.
- Microwave thawing is safe, but we don’t like how parts of the meat sometimes start to cook in the microwave making the beef uneven temperatures when you’re ready to cook. However, this is an option when you’re in a bind, just make sure to cook the beef right away.
- Cooking meat frozen is always an option, as well, just be prepared for the cook time to nearly double than thawed beef.
