How to Defrost Pork Chops

When it comes to defrosting pork chops, there are a few methods you can use. While the safest way is to defrost them in the refrigerator overnight, that may not always be convenient. In those situations, you can try two alternative methods:

Cold Water Defrosting

  1. Remove the pork chops from the freezer and place them in a tightly sealed container or plastic bag, ensuring it’s leak-proof.
  2. Submerge the sealed pork chops in a large bowl of cold water. For 1 pound of meat, soak them for an hour, changing the water every 30 minutes. For larger quantities (3 – 4 lbs), you may need an additional hour or two.

Microwave Defrosting

  1. Unwrap the pork chops and place them in the microwave.
  2. Use the “defrost” or “thaw” button and microwave the pork chops for 30 seconds.
  3. Flip the pork chops and microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Continue this process until the pork chops are completely thawed.
