Raw meat left out... Is it still good?

I can't believe that I did this, well actually I can believe it, since I did it.

I bought some hamburger and left it out last night. It was frozen and when I found it this morning, it was still cold. Like a fridge cold, not frozen cold.

Is it still good? I would figure it sat out for 4 hours. I remember my mom would defrost meat this way, just set it on the counter, but I know that it's recomemded not to do that anymore.

For as long as the meat don't smell funky, I'd say its still good. I've left frozen meat to defrost in the sink overnight and it was good as fresh in the morning and ready for cooking.

Thank You! It didn't have a funny smell, and was still cold. I think I might fry up a little and taste it to make sure.

Yeah its fine, I thaw out my meat by having it sit out for hours, and never had an issue. Plus hamburg you would normally cook (I assume) until its well done, which would kill off any slight chance of bacteria.

Good to know, I always try and put it in the refrigerator the night before I cook it though... and the other day when I went to the grocery store and it was 105 degrees I bought some ground turkey and left it in the car, and forgot about it for hours...I threw it away though, because it was kinda weird....

That is how my mom always did it, and now she's like you need to put it in the refrig. But I usually leave it out and I've never had a problem. I can remember my mom sometimes refreezing things, but she does'nt advise that anymore and I agree. Which I have never done.

If it is cold I would not worry about it and then cooking it through of course.

I don't know about some of ya'll but I use the defrost setting on my microwave. Geez, we would not eat most nights if it weren't for that . It is on the not so expensive ovens now too.

That's how my mom always did it years ago, and she was a professional chef before she retired. I would rather have it thaw out in the Fridge though, and now she thaws it out in the Fridge too.

I know its a no-no to do this but I've thawed hamburger on the counter, realized I wasn't going to use it and put it back in the freezer. It was fine when I finally used it.
