You might have an Auto Defrost function on there, check for that. It works the best.

I think I’ve told this story already, but let me repeat it anyway. I was in the Soviet Army from 1979 till 1981. The standard army (I believe any army) practice is that you use the stored supplies and replenish them with the new, fresh products, meat included. Well, so was the practice then anyway. Meat came on the base as a whole cow stamped with a date when it was frozen. Guess what date that was. You’ll never guess. Okay, I’ll add the best supplies went to elite battalions, the ones that did real rigorous training; I was in Engineering battalion, so no real fighting or even training. Did not even see the gun, did a lot of shoveling though. Anyway, back to meat. Have you guessed the year yet? I’m going to post an answer a bit latter, see if anybody will guess, in the mean time I want to tell you just one thing, your beef is fine.

LMAO! Charlie that is hilarious! OK, now I will share one with you. My Mom has a 30 cubic foot freezer that she has owned for roughly 50 years. They moved here about 35 years ago and I know for sure it was cleaned out THEN. I have been trying to get her to clean everything out of it and toss it out for ages. In the process of "using up" all the stuff in there I found a chicken that looked like it had been cryogenically frozen it was so solid. The label on it was from a store that closed in the 80's. HOWEVER...I happen to know their food floor closed MUCH earlier than that, in the 70's. We thawed it and stewed it, it was fine. LOL. What the heck, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger right?

i guess i didnt thaw it long enough because when i started browning it, i had to use a knife to break the beef apart. also some liquid (probably the water stilli n the beef) formed at the bottom of the pot but i drained it out. im just about to add the sauce now....

also how long is it supposed to take (normally, not when frozen) to brown beef on a medium heat?

it should not take a very long time normally. 4 or 5 minutes maybe.
