I'm sooo excited: I scored some 1 pound packs of frozen, grass fed ground beef at Trader Joes.
What's the fastest / best way to thaw it?
Whenever I've tried it in the microwave it seems to always start cooking the outer most area while the inside is still frozen.
BTW, the dimensions of the pack is 1" X 6" X 4".
One more consideration: I'm doing a 30 day LOW-HISTAMINE PALEO trial. For those who might not know, some people are sensitive to the histamines which develop as protein starts to age/rot/spoil/decompose. It doesn't actually need to be spoiled to be a problem: leftovers (even refrigerated) are a problem. So, THE QUICKER it can go from frozen to thawed to cooked to eaten, the better! Therefore, I don't want to thaw it in the fridge for 24 hours like I previously would have done.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
