        Digressing a bit. Pork nowadays doesn't seem to have much flavour unless you add herbs etc. Back to defrosting. Most advice is to remove food from freezer and place in the fridge for twentfour hours, but microwaves and halogen ovens have a defrosting setting. I usually let the defrosting take place in the fridge, however sirloin and rump steakes, I place in a bowl under running water.

        Another concern of present day. An age old thing was. Never reheat meat. Now ready meals are avaiable where the meat has already been cooked and you re-cook it. Finally. Far too much food is wasted due to this use by date business.

          So true mike the best way to defrost meat is put it in the fridge to defrost but never leave it out over night as warm air can cause bactria to grow, so one needs to plan but if you forget put frozen meat in cold/hot water for a couple of hours no longer. Or run under the tap

          Use microwave defrost only if you going to eat all the meat that day as it does tend to cook it as it defrosts and the more times you cool and reheat food the higher risk of food posioning

          Meat with bone in it needs to be defrosted well. You can defrost and cook boneless meat in electric pressure cooker and make food tasty with herbs

          Many companies put use by dates mainly for commercial reasons not always is the food off usually smell will tell you as mike said too much good food is wasted , but if one in doubt sling it , its better to be safe than sorry

            I don't think any meat has flavour now @Mike Allen. Since moving back here to the mainland from the Isle of Man two years ago I've found how tasteless it is. Manx meat is mostly from special breeds, farmed well and full of flavour. :) Beef is not a problem as I can't eat it.
