Defrosting Tips Another delicious recipe brought to you by AMP Meats

Method

THE BEST WAY: IN THE FRIDGE
The safest way to defrost meat is in the refrigerator. Always place packages on a plate or in a bowl when defrosting. Allow about 24 hours per 2kgs of meat. 

THE FASTEST WAY: IN COLD WATER
If you are in a hurry, resist the temptation to thaw your meat in a bowl of warm water. Meat that is left at above 5°C is in the danger zone for the proliferation of harmful bacteria. Speedier defrosting can be achieved by submersion in COLD water. Make sure the meat is in a sealed, leak-proof container or bag, and change the water every 30 minutes or so. Small packages of meat or poultry weighing a 500g or less may defrost in an hour or less. A 1-2kg package may take 2 to 3 hours.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Ground meat and poultry thawed in the refrigerator can be kept for one or two days after defrosting. Poultry can last 3-7 days once thawed. Boneless red meat should keep for 7-14 days. Remember, don't refreeze thawed meats.
