The basic law of convection / conduction is, heat is exchanged (absorbed) quicker than cold. Basically it takes more heat to to warm the meat than the amount of cold released from it. Now not only was the heat absorbed in exchange for the cold temperature of the meat, but now heat is required to cook it as well while the internal temperature of the meat rises.
