I won't do it again, I promise. It was real tender. Very Birria-like. Good.
Well, here is my view: Probably not recommended to eat but also probably safe IF You didn't take the top off the crock when you finished cooking. The reason is it had no living bacteria at that point and so there was nothing pathogenic to grow on warm.
However, since BF had some after it cooked so the pot was opened, utensils inserted, exposed to skin, hair, air and so on, it could have been contaminated.
This is similar to leaving the baked potato in the oven overnight if you just shut off the stove and don't handle them.
Anyway, hope you are alright in 12-24 hours from eating. That would be the normal time for problems to show up.
