Temperature differential has a huge effect on heat transfer.
I know this.
And still, like a dumbass I took the two succulent and thick pork chops out of the freezer LAST NIGHT and put them in the refrigerator, only to arrive home after work tonight to find them STILL FROZEN. An hour, removed from the ziplock on a metal pan for the heat sink effect helped some.
It is now 7:55 Central Daylight Time and they have not thawed enough for cooking.
Back in the frig with the two of you.
Looks like it's going to be a Top Ramen kind of night.
