<< Mary-Anne, I presume that you mean I should totally encase the
3 lbs of thin-sliced beef in a waterproof jacket, and then soak it in
cold water in the sink.... right?  >>

Yes,  You just place meat that is in a zip lock bag or other protective 
(plastic) covering in a sink with cold water covering it.  It is amazing not 
only is this much safer it defrosts much faster as well.
