How To Defrost Your Meat Fast And Safely

Her fail-proof method of defrosting her meat works for beef, chicken, and pork and is extremely simple. She uses only a freezer bag and water, and within minutes her meat is ready to cook. But not only is it fast, it's also FDA approved meaning it's safe and free from causing harmful bacteria.
With her meat set aside on the counter, she heats her water, and once it reaches 140 degrees, she turns the heat off. There may be some bubbles at the bottom of the pot, but it is still only a little warmer than tap water.
She takes her chicken which is placed inside a Ziplock bag, and simply submerges it into the water for about 12 minutes. Once she takes it out of the water, she can then cook it like normal. She does note that the meat should never be left in the water for longer than 45 minutes, but that should be no problem since any variety of the meats only take about 12 minutes. So if you change your dinner plans last minute, just pull your meat out of the freezer and try this helpful method to make life much easier.
