if im in a hurry which is most of the time, hot water it is then cook it as soon as it is thawed. but when i do pull it from the water it is still cold to the touch. i have never gotten sick from it. but i know it is nothe proper way to thaw meat. so i am tryin to get better at plannin ahead by puttin it in the fridge or even cold water.
