DEFROSTING YOUR FOOD AT ROOM TEMPERATURE
Contrary to what most people around the world believe, you should never defrost meat on your kitchen counter. Yes, that’s right! According to Department of Agriculture U.S, whether it is raw or cooked, meat that is left at a temperature more than forty degrees centigrade helps bacterial growth. This is precisely why you should never defrost meat on a countertop, but instead in your refrigerator, cold water or your microwave oven.
