Thawing Tips 101

I shared a tip with one of my friends the other day and she in turn has shared it with many of her friends so now I am thinking I should share it with all of you!

How many times do you come home, haven't thought too much about dinner, need to make something but all your meat is frozen? Taking chicken or ground beef out of the freezer and putting into the microwave on defrost just gets to be a mess. Thawed chicken juice gets all over the plate and sometimes the microwave. Ground beef never thaws evenly and then you have part cold, part frozen, part cooked meat! Ewwwww! Well, with Bekah's new quick thawing tip, microwave mess will be a thing of the past! Simply place any frozen meat or sauce into a resealable ziploc bag. Fill your sink with warm water, place the bag into the sink and let it thaw. No mess in the microwave and all juices are contained inside the ziploc bag! This works well with any type of frozen meat and I use it to thaw left over sauces as well. So next time you need to thaw meat or sauce, forget about the microwave and remember Bekah's quick thawing tip! :-)
