I mess up my cook planning all the time, especially when I want to marinate ahead of time. I find myself at bed time with a frozen piece of meat that will take too long in the fridge to thaw for the next day. Sometimes I leave it out and it is thawed in the morning, but occasionally it is too thawed that way and gets tossed. Last night I had a brain fart and tried taking a rock hard frozen cut and putting it in a lunch sized cooler which sat out over night. In the morning I found it was very cold, but no longer frozen. This will be my method in this circumstance from now on.
Buon appetito to all the BGE family
