Crockpot & half frozen meat? *Update

I have a crockpot recipe I was going to make today but my brisket is still frozen in the middle.  Would it turn out OK to cook it now or should I wait until it's totally thawed?

Update~ Thanks ya'll!  I had no idea that people cooked frozen meat.  This is fantastic news!!!  Thanks for all the advice, our dinner turned out great :)

it should be fine might come out a little waterier than you would like, but other than that should not have a problem

Works just fine to cook it partially thawed or even completely frozen!  You may want to add to the cook time, though, or else cook on high for a couple of hours then turn to low.

Me too. And it gives me a little extra needed cooking time, since I work full time.

I would probably put it in a bit earlier on low.

I throw frozen roasts and meat in the crock all the time.  I never defrost.  Always turns out fine.

I use frozen meat all the time, but wouldn't want to put it in frozen after about 10am.  It needs to cook just a little longer.

I do it all the time! So forgetful at night to thaw stuff out! It'll be fine..may have to bump
up the cooking time a bit.
