cooking a slightly frozen brisket
I need to cook it now and it's still a little frozen. Will it be ok if I just cook it an hour or two longer? I cook my brisket for a long time anyway. thanks.
If the first step is to pan sear the brisket, I would take the time to thoroughly defrost the meat first. Go ahead and use a luke-warm water bath, but don't try to sear the meat if it is still frozen at all.
On the other hand, for a recipe like brisket where you cook it at low heat for a long time, the searing step is pretty optional.
