Defrosting Ground Lamb

What is the proper way to defrost Ground Lamb? In the sink with some cold water for a couple of hours? I need it soft enough to make meatballs.

Yes, that will work.

It will also defrost quickly if you put it on a heavy aluminum pan or griddle. the high conductivity of the aluminum will speed up the thawing process. Turn it a couple of times to get the other side next to the aluminum.

The same way you'd defrost ground beef...in the refrigerator.
