I left my pork roast out!

I left a frozen pork roast in my car overnight and when I discovered it the next morning, it was still frozen. I immediatley put it in the refrigerator (yesterday morning), and then I put it to cook in my crock pot this morning. However I am now second guessing myself. My husband says it's fine, but I want other opinions to consider.

IMO, if it is still frozen, it is still good.

Hi, Stacey. Welcome to DC What was the temperature outside that night? If it was near or below freezing, the roast will be fine.

It was not freezing or close to freezing, but it wasn't warm either. It was still frozen though.

I'd say if the roast was still frozen it's good to go ahead and use. If it had gotten warm or up to ambient temps above 40 then I'd have second thoughts.

If it's still frozen it's OK and I would cook it.

I would concur. If still frozen, that would be as if you thawed it in the fridge. And, welcome to DC!

I agree with the others that since it was still frozen, it's fine. But, I think you are wise to cook it right away.
