Subject: Frozen pork chops
From: Murray MacLeod
Date: 13 Nov 01 - 06:43 PM

I apologize profusely in advance for this thread, I mean this is BS to the "n"th exponent, but ....................

My SO is working out of town and has left me some meals in the freezer. What I really feel like tonight is a couple of baked pork chops, which she told me to defrost before using.

Well, I forgot to remove them from the freezer compartment this morning so they are still rock hard. My inclination is, the hell with it, heat the oven to 375 and stick them in for forty minutes anyway, maybe fifty since they're frozen hard.

My question is, are there likely to be any unwanted side effects later this evening ? Like me dying, for instance? I know it is mandatory to thaw turkey before roasting, but a turkey isn't a pig, is it?

Reassurance, please, I hear the temperature bell tinging and I am going to put the chops in now. I WOULD wait until they're thawed, but to paraphrase Homer Simpson, "I'M HUNGRY NOW! "

Do you have a microwave? You can thaw them rapidly on its defrost cycle. If it doesn't have one, I would try doing them for 5 mins or so at 30-50% power. You can also thaw them under cool running water in the sink. Probably the worst danger you're dealing with, besides rock-hard or rubbery pork chops, is Trichinosis. This disease of pigs is caused in some humans who eat them by eating the pork when it isn't thoroughly cooked. A meat thermometer might have a mark for the temp that means pork is safe to eat. I think it has to be hotter than poultry or beef--never eat pork "rare"!

They would cook more evenly if you were to fry them in a skillet. Chances are that they would be far more moist as well. Try about six to ten minutes per side depending upon the thickness.

pork chops baked frozen will cook too fast on the outside, in relation to the inside. So, by time the center is done, they may be dry and over cooked on the outside....depending on how thick they are...I suppose it's too late now, but MaryMac's hint to run tepid water over them is good.

(and baked chops oughta have 'something' over them..as it happens, I am currently eating baked pork chop that had mustard and pepper & garlic spread on it.)

Trichinosis


From that site, the symptoms:
Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort are the first symptoms of trichinosis. Headaches, fevers, chills, cough, eye swelling, aching joints and muscle pains, itchy skin, diarrhea, or constipation follow the first symptoms. If the infection is heavy, patients may experience difficulty coordinating movements, and have heart and breathing problems. In severe cases, death can occur.

For mild to moderate infections, most symptoms subside within a few months. Fatigue, weakness, and diarrhea may last for months.


Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 170 deg. F, but it's a real trick to get in internal temperature reading from a pork chop.

Defrosting in the microwave is best. You can also stick the pork chops in a plastic bag, and run some warm water over them. You can leave them in the oven a bit longer than you normally would.

Trichinosis is pretty rare these days, but it's stil a possibility. Just cook the things - undercooked pork is gross.

I've been cooking for myself for some years now and I don't have an electric thawing machine - microwave. I'm always forgetting to take the meat out of the freezer before I go to work. No problems, I just cook it frozen, either in a frying pan or in the oven. Pork, lamb, beef, chook ( chicken ), turkey, fish, koala bear etc. The only proviso is, as mentioned by others, is to make sure the product is properly cooked.
It all tastes great to me.

Well, they tasted great, and so far no ill effects. I used a product called "Shake m'Bake" (I think that's what it is called I don't have the packet) , it's like golden colored breadcrumbs with spices added it seems to form a coating on the meat and seal the moisture in, so the chops don't dry out.

I wouldn't feel perfectly safe about cooking frozen pork (and I don't think it freezes well for taste purposes, either), but, if it is safe, the George Foreman is really the ticket. Frozen swordfish steaks: six minutes. Frozen chicken breasts: nine minutes.

AS the chief cook and bottlewasher around here, Murray, may I say you are completely pathetic! What a riot!!!

Was any of the meat pink after it was cooked? And BTW, if you did happen to undercook it and it was pork infected with trichinosis, it's unlikely you will notice for some time yet. Since you probably didn't read Jeri's link, let me also post this:

"Abdominal symptoms can occur 1-2 days after infection. Further symptoms usually start 2-8 weeks after eating contaminated meat. Symptoms may range from very mild to severe and relate to the number of infectious worms consumed in meat. Often, mild cases of trichinosis are never specifically diagnosed and are assumed to be the flu or other common illnesses."

AND THIS WILL INTEREST YOU TOO!!! If you croak, at least you'll be in good company..........

Pork Cutlets May Have Killed Mozart


By LINDSEY TANNER-- The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) -- Forget rheumatic fever, kidney stones, heart disease, pneumonia and even poisoning. What really killed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 210 years ago could have been pork cutlets.

The latest theory about Mozart's untimely death on Dec. 5, 1791 at age 35 in Vienna suggests the culprit was likely trichinosis.

The worm infestation is usually caused by eating undercooked pork, and could explain all of Mozart's symptoms, which included fever, rash, limb pain and swelling, says Dr. Jan. V. Hirschmann of Puget Sound Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Seattle.

Hirschmann offers as damning evidence an innocuous little letter Mozart wrote to his wife 44 days before his illness began, as documented in a 1999 biography.

"What do I smell?... pork cutlets! Che Gusto (What a delicious taste). I eat to your health," the composer is quoted as writing.

"If his final illness was indeed trichinosis, whose incubation period is up to 50 days, Mozart may have unwittingly disclosed the precise cause of his death -- those very pork chops," Hirschmann said.

His eight-page report based on a probe of medical literature, historical documents and Mozart biographies is published in the June 11 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine (http://archinte.ama-assn.org).

Mozart died 15 days after he became ill. His doctors offered only a vague cause of death -- "severe miliary fever" -- and no autopsy was performed.

His wife, Constanze, reportedly said after his death that Mozart thought he was being poisoned, and rumours circulated that his enemies, including rival composer Antonio Salieri, may have done him in.

Since then, medical theorists have largely discounted foul play and Hirschmann, an infectious disease specialist, said there's no evidence to suggest Mozart had symptoms of acute poisoning.

His symptoms did match those of an unspecified epidemic disease going around Vienna at the time, Hirshmann said.

Trichinosis wasn't identified until the 1800s, when there were several deadly outbreaks in Europe.

Drugs since have been developed that can kill the worms and treat the symptoms, and fatal cases now are rare.

Hirschmann noted that complications of trichinosis can include pneumonia and heart problems -- culprits listed in other Mozart theories, which Hirschmann says don't adequately explain all the features of Mozart's illness.

Dr. Faith Fitzgerald, a University of California-Davis professor of medicine whose rheumatic fever theory was front-page news last year, isn't offended that Hirschmann has come up with a different explanation for Mozart's death.

Hirshmann's almost certainly won't be the last, Fitzgerald said.

"There have been 150 separate diagnoses proposed, and now there's another one," she said.

"It does strike me as somewhat strange the investment people have in something that is virtually unknowable."

Mozart's grave was dug up about seven years after his death so it could be reused, and his remains were dispersed.

Hirschmann acknowledged that not being able to be proved wrong "makes it much more enjoyable to speculate."

Doctors like to review the master's death "because "it's fun and because it's Mozart," Fitzgerald said.

"I personally think that he died because they needed a new choirmaster in heaven."

Mmmm food for thought here ............

I make no apology for not being a cook, throughout my life I have always had a woman do this for me. My father couldn't cook either. But I have to admit I am secretly envious of men who CAN cook.

Nevertheless, addressing the trichonosis issue, I say "Pshaw" with a toss of my wrist. As I have repeated on the Forum ad nauseam, I am a statistician by inclination, and I would guess that the chances of getting trichonosis from pork chops are roughly the same as winning the lottery. (Which, btw has a $24,000,000 jackpot up for grabs in Florida tomorrow )

So, Mozart notwithstanding, I face the next fifty days with the calm and fortitude for which the Scots are famous, and if I do indeed succumb fatally to trichonosis, I will have the consolation of knowing that it couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

Consensus around my neighborhood is that there is little danger of trichinosis from domestic pork, since enforcements of regulations against feeding uncooked slop to the hawgs. Since some folk do slop their hawgs with whatever's leftover from the kitchen, cautious people do try to be sure their pork is well done.

Most recent cases I've heard of have been from people trying to make "jerky" out of bear meat - and the occasional under-roasted possum. (sorry Cleigh!).

Any meat that eats meat can transmit it. Chickens, in fact, have the double hazard of trich and salmonela. And crow should definitely be well cooked before eating.

Scavangers all.

John from Hull.
Lemme see now - how to cook KayBees ( Koala Bears ). I've got a recipe around here somewhere - but the best way is au natural.
We just wait for a bushfire to go through, this takes about 5-7 minutes in a eucalyptus forest depending on the TPH ( trees per hectare )and the amount of PTSW (petrol to start with ). As you know the KB's reside in these forests and, as luck, or nature, would have it, the heat generated in the 5-7 minute inferno is just enough to thoroughly barbeque a KB sitting in the fork of a tree. Then its just a matter of chucking a few yonnies ( stones ) at the dead KB until you knock it out of the tree. Just about all the burnt fur comes off when it hits the ground.
If you get there early enough they're still warm and juicy. Its a real bastard though if you get one with a snap-fried baby clinging to the mother's back. With the extra density of flesh and fur it stops the heat getting to the back of mum KB and it leaves a raw spot. Probably a monty for trichinosis.
Generally we go for the kidneys and liver first, just great with a bottle of rough Cab-Sav or, funnily enough, that great lager from the Phillipines, San Miguel. The eucalypt flavour infused flesh is succulent, you could never duplicate it in a kitchen environment.
The more traditional cuts are taken home for the wives - we tell them its rabbit, otherwise they wouldn't touch it. They reckon they taste marvellous, cold, with a young Chardonnay.
There's not enough meat on the baby KB's to get your teeth into so we feed them to the Bunyips.

Hows the tricky noses now Murray?
Regarding the incident of the woman who killed her husband with a frozen pork chop; does anyone know what she was charged with? Murder in the third degree below zero perhaps?

Reminds me of a James Thurber story:
First Man: (enters wearing bandage round his head)
Second Man: Goodness me! Whatever happened to you?
First Man: My wife hit me with some tomatoes.
Second Man: But how could tomatoes hurt you like that?
First Man: They were in a can.
(Collapse of stout party etc. etc.)

As it happens, as a single man I have had to acquire skills in such things as "cooking", "laundering", and "cleaning", and on occasion I do actually exercise these skills. (Why only last night I cooked a meal with some brussel sprouts - they tasted good at the time, and tasted good again an hour later, and were still tasting good at regular intervals thereafter...) However I am very intrigued by this concept of a "woman" to do all these tasks for me. How do I get hold of one of these? Are they good for anything else as well?

I do take her out to restaurants frequently, and have been known to buy what in Britain would be called a "takeaway" on occasion, so I do my bit.

As I said earlier , I AM slightly envious of men who do know their way around food and cooking, but I have left it far too late to acquire those skills myself.

Murray
