Arghhh! Was trying to be so organised with a busy week coming up so prepared Monday night's meal last night in the slow cooker. Turned it off to cool down at 9.30 and wake up this morning and it's still sitting there! It's veal goulash...if that makes a difference. 1 kg of veal wasted........argh. Have put it in the fridge now but should I just give it to the dog and start again?


So would you bin it?

Yes, I would bin it, or give it to the dog.

It's not worth the food poisoning risk. Dogs tummies are tougher than ours so would be fine for your dog.

I get that it's frustrating to waste all that time and food, but please don't eat it!

how hot was it inside your house last night?

I would put it in the fridge now and then reheat it really well

Even I would not eat it.  I probablly wouldnt give it to the dog either.  They also get food poisoning.

We'd eat it in our house, after very thorough reheating. But then we have cast-iron guts and have never had gastro.
