I took steaks out of the deep freeze late last night (10pm) and popped them in a bowl of cold water. I had intended on putting them in the fridge then finishing thawing them today, but I forgot about them.
In the morning (9:30am) the water was cool, but not cold to the touch and the steaks (which started frozen solid) were completely thawed.
I took a good whiff and they smelled like... steak.
I salted them then popped them in a bag with a vinegar/garlic based marinade and put them in the fridge.
They are grass fed from a cow we had butchered at a local butcher.
Are they safe to eat tonight for dinner?
