Original Post

I really want to make pot roast today. I gathered the ingredients last night for this morning and notice i completley forgot to thaw out the meat.

I threw it in the fridge last night at like 10pm. this morning at 8am it's still pretty frozen. a little thawed.


what can i do? can i put a semi frozen roast in a crockpot? microwave it?

wrap it in plastic and put it in a bowl of water that's just slightly warmer than room temp

I'd put it (still wrapped) into a pot of cool water to thaw

I cook mine from frozen. If you put it in now, depending on the size, you can probably eat about 6.

do you know how long it usually takes to thaw? it's about 2 1/2 pound roast i believe

does that compromise the taste at all pk?

Not at all. Instead it makes it sooo tender. I just cook at 350 in the oven and make sure it has water just covering it. Keep poking it with a fork until it pulls apart instead of picking up in a clump. That size should be done around 6.

i have heard of just cooking it frozen. I don't think it makes a difference in taste, maybe just cook time a little bit.

however a frozen turkey should never be put in a deep fryer....mayhem will follow

cooking meat from frozen affects the texture. unless you cook it covered in water which is like boiling it..sucks out all the taste
