    I got some pork chops out of the freezer yesterday and sat them on the sink to defrost... But OH and I fell asleep and didn't get back up to cook them.

    Anyway, I just realised I'd left them out... OH says they should be fine.. but I'm not too sure I want to risk it?

    How long did you leave them? Were they still cold to the touch?

    I wouldn't eat them... better safe than sorry. You should always defrost meat in the refrigerator, not outside :thumbup:

    I normally do, but they wouldn't have defrosted in time for tea if I had done that..... But it turns out they didn't need to defrost in a hurry anyway lol... Oops

    If it was overnight, I wouldn't trust them unless they were a super thick cut. If they were room temperature to the touch, toss them.

    I agree, if they didn't still feel cold toss them. It isn't worth it. They say not to eat anything that has been out more than 2 hours.

    If it was overnight, I wouldn't eat it. Anything above the temps in a fridge will harbor a large bacteria growth. I'd get rid of them.:winkwink:
