You want to keep the meat submerged in the cold water. The meat should thaw in less than 15 minutes; cook immediately.

Is it bad to defrost ground beef in hot water

Answered By: Luke Moore Date: created: Jul 07 2021

To thaw the ground beef, submerge the bag in cold tap water — never use warm or hot water, as that can cause the outer layer of the food to heat up to a temperature where harmful bacteria begins to multiply. Change the water every 30 minutes, to ensure that it stays cold enough.

Why does cold water thaw faster than hot water

Answered By: Timothy Adams Date: created: May 29 2022

That's because the rate of heat flow between two objects always increases as the temperature difference between them increases. When you put frozen food in hot water, heat flows into that food faster than it would from cold water because the temperature difference is larger.Oct 7, 1997
