defrosted pork steak yesterday - took it out of freezer yesterday morning and put it in fridge when I got home at 5.30 was meant to cook it last night but had visitors over and so just got a quick tea instead - would you say it is ok to use tonight now are should it be thrown out?

ya I would cook it today no problem! Def smell it when you take it out of the fridge but couldnt see there being a problem when you put it in the fridge straight away!

You should really defrost meat in the fridge as this avoids the chance of any bacteria or contamination etc. As long as the meat has been in the fridge since it was defrosted, I'd say it's fine.

I'd use it, wouldnt' think twice about it unless its smelly.
