Had a large beef joint in my freezer sincr new year as i was ill. Taken it to friends today for roast. I took it.out yesterday to defrost it was still frozen half a hour ago so i plunged it in got water and now the colour has done all Gray like it's started to cook.... It's in the oven now.. I've tactfully requested sausages instead because i handled the meat and i cant stick the smell of raw meat. Is this safe? Should we just adandon and go carvery? Sorry I know it's not a aibu But it's pretty urgent I dont have a clue about thawing meat Google sais it was okay.
Meat thermometer? Nope I have a normal digital one fron boots that I use for the baby can i use that if I wash it or do I need a proper one? Sorry to sound so thick but im usually okay at cooking not great with raw meat though.
You can't use an ordinary thermometer as that will only give you the surface temperature, a meat thermometer has a probe that you insert into the flesh. Don't think your DCs would like that! Seriously, though, yes it went a bit grey as it started to cook, but you carried on cooking in the oven, so it should be fine.
