FAQs about beef
There are three safe ways that you can thaw beef.
- Refrigerator: This is the best method, but it relies on planning about a day in advance. Stew meat, steaks, and ground beef can defrost in a day by this method, while bone-in cuts and whole roasts might take at least two days. Once the beef thaws, you can keep it in the refrigerator for up to five days before cooking it.
- Cold Water: Do not remove the beef's packaging, but place it in a leak-proof bag. Place the bag in cold water, and change out the water every 30 minutes. Smaller packages might take an hour, while larger ones might take several hours.
- Microwave: If you're using this method, make sure you cook the beef immediately to prevent the spread of bacteria.
The way that cattle are fed plays a role in their nutrient component. Grass-fed cattle eat mostly grass, while grain-fed cattle eat a diet based on soy and corn. As a result, grass-fed beef typically contains less fat but has more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed cattle. Grass-fed beef is usually more expensive as well.
