In my home growing up we always defrosted our meat quickly in the microwave. I never thought about any other way of defrosting meat… it was always the microwave, there was even a special button for it. Now that I’m older and on my own (and not to mention the fact that we don’t own a microwave) I have a different method for defrosting meat. What’s even better is that this method is quicker and defrosts meat way more evenly. Learn how to defrost your meat without a microwave.
