If you let it sit long enough, it will cook itself.

I have heard on youtube any time as little as 5 min. But after 5 min meat does not feel significantly warmer than when in the frig. I have left the meat out for as long as an hour. Not sure how much warmer the interior of meat is though.
After being taken out of the refrigerator? There's no minimum time I let it sit.

Aside from being frozen solid, which is a completely different story, I would even venture to say that a cold steak on hot iron lets the inside stay a touch more rare.

Generally, I hate having to thaw frozen uncooked meats, it always makes me worry about the temperature in the very center.

Now that would take a pretty hot kitchen.

I always thought it was a bad thing to let meat that's never been frozen sit out in room temperature..... & can 5 minutes really make any difference? I cook it straight from the frig.

If it’s already thawed and or just coming out of the fridge, I just get it in the pan. No need to let it sit but occasionally you may be prepping something else, then I still thinks it’s ok for 20-30 minutes while you finish up the other stuff.

It’s the only thing I use my microwave for.

I can’t leave meat rest on my counter with the cats. So I let it rest in the microwave. Don't know what I’ll do in the next house. I’m not going to have a microwave.

If I have time and the meat is frozen, I defrost in the fridge. Then I will take it out long enough to
bring it somewhere near room temp.
