    meh… I defrost a chicken in warm water in like 2 hours and there’s no
    weird “cooked” or “microwave-burn” parts like I get in the microwave. I
    cook it directly after, and it’s totally fine.

    1:11 That sink could do with a clean. SHAME ! . Use some AJAX with bleach
    then get some metal polish to make it shine to the standard that is the
    minimum expected for videos on healthy lifestyle. . o0o

    Can someone please share with me why should we not re-freeze meat (ground
    beef specifically) after it has been thawed? What exactly is the danger?

    I want to know the “Why?”

  14. WIllyGilly321 says:

    To thaw meat FAST use a cast iron pan. The thick heavey iron acts as a
    reverse heat sink on a computers CPU (SERIOUSLY!) Put the frozen meat in
    the pan with a few OZ of water, (Water acts like thermal grease). To speed
    this up even more, stack 2 pans, 1 upsude down, 1 rightside up touching
    eachother on their bottoms. This expands your surface area of iron
    dramatically. You can also turn a burner on momentaryly, just a few
    seconds. This works increadbly well, only about 60 min for a big steak.
