    If they are chops, get them separated as soon as you can. Put them in a plastic bag and soak them in warm water (not too hot because the outside will start to cook.) If you have a roast I would find a microwave and start working on the thawing now. Use very low energy, or the outside will cook. It could take 20 to 30 minutes.

    Good luck.

    I had a pork roast joint last weekend that took ages to defrost - I usually fill the sink up with really hot water and put the joint into a tin that will sit floating in the water - this speeds up the defrosting process without cooking the meat at all. If your roast is enormous and heavy, just fill up to the sides of the tin so it can sit on the bottom of the sink without any water getting on it.
    Pork can be a dodgy one and has to be cooked really thoroughly - if you are unsure whether or not it is really defrosted, make sure you roast it on a lower oven temperature (150-160), giving it a nice slow cook. This will ensure that the middle is really cooked, and I would shove a skewer into it as well to see if the juice from the middle is nice and clear.
    As a further gourmet tip from the Squiggle kitchen, sliced pears sauteed in a little butter and honey are lovely with roast pork.

    Thumbs up

    If you haven't got a microwave your oven might have a defrost setting on it.
    Good Luck!

    Good advice Jeemag.

    It's too late now but you just stick them in the microwave on defrost or low.
