Is it okay to just dump a block of frozen hambuger into a piping hot skillet, or does it need to be thawed?

Sure, I see no problem with this.
3 (18.8%)
It's fine, but the cooking will be a little uneven. Still makes for good eats though.
4 (25%)
It'd be better to wait it out & thaw it.
7 (43.8%)
Thaw it or forget it, it's trash otherwise.

As other people said, if you don't mind it taking much longer to cook, you can go from frozen to pan (or grill).
If you have the time, however, thaw it in the fridge, unless you bought the 'cook from frozen' ones.

I buy ground beef and let it thaw and then make the patties so I don't think my advice would benefit those who use pre-made patties.

Thaw that ish. If impatient or didn't plan ahead (e.g. thawing in the fridge overnight), use the meat thawing button on the microwave.
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Defrost. Yeah we sometimes do that method. Gets pretty much the same result.

Cool. So have you already bought his plane ticket in order for him to come here & start making dinner for you? Or are you still working out the logistics of all that? Guess I should clean out the guest room .
Damn. It's as if your life was geared to prevent you from enjoying it. And I'm sure it's not fun either.

Hot-water thawing can actually be dangerous, as the outer layers of the meat can become exposed to temperatures and moisture levels suited for bacterial growth.

... Aaaaand then you fry/cook the meat and all the bacteria dies anyway, so why should you care? (unless you cook it improperly and then you're basically eating it raw. Don't do that. You can get tainted meat with a lot of bacteria from the start and not even be aware of it.)

Also, it takes a while for bacteria to grow. I think the Department of Agriculture just wants you to be extra careful.
