    Ground beef I'll defrost in the microwave, if I have to. Otherwise I'm an overnight on the counter, fridge (or slow cooker) while I'm at work person too. I'll cook plenty from frozen as well, I just make sure I have more time since it takes longer. Usually its smaller roasts that I'll cook from frozen, but I've been known to grill a steak or two from frozen and they turn out ok.

    I also cook bigger hunks of meat on the weekend, that last me the first part into the week. I'll freeze cooked leftovers if I don't think I can get through them before they go a bit icky. I'm fairly particular about what I'll eat, my stomach is very touchy and gets cranky otherwise.
