It needs a while to defrost, so if its thawed, it should be fine to cook.

It is safe to cook but I defrost my meat either in the microwave, cold water, or use a defrosting plate that defrosts foods in half of the time. If the meat hasn't defrosted by three hours, defrost it the rest of the way by microwave and don't leave it out longer than 4 hours at the most.

It's not safe to eat beef period.
Ital is VITAL!

Oh yeah I leave it out until it is completely thawed - try to put it in the fridge before it hits room temps but 5-6 hours is not out of the question on the counter. I know not the safest way to thaw meat but in 40+ years of doing this no one has gotten food poison.

Absolutely safe to cook. It probably hadn't even thawed that much.
