When you will cut some frozen meat, pour some vinegar on it. This process would help to down the freezing temperature and allows the frozen meat to get soften up faster. Before cooking the meat wash it so that the meat would not taste sour. But I would suggest, use apple cider or balsamic vinegar; it would add more flavor to the meat.
#3 Use Metal Pot
Put your frozen meat in a ziplock bag. Then take a metal pot to flip the pot over and place the ziplock bag on top of it. Now take another metal pot and add some normal tap water on it to make it heavy. Then place the second pot on the top of that meat, to sandwiching the meat between two metal pots. This process helps to speed up the process of thawing. When your meat gets soft enough then just cut it with a heavy-duty knife.
