Another "is it safe to eat it now" question on Beef in the crockpot

At 2:00 yesterday afternoon I turned on the crock pot on Low and let my beef cook till about 8:30 last night, then I switched it to WARM and let it sit overnight, where it sits NOW.

Is it still good? Did the temp drop too low while on WARM or is it still good?

I'm at work and heading home now to scoop some in a bowl but I wonder if sitting on warm for the last 12 hours is bad?

I got rid of my refridgerator in preperation for an April 1st move out - a little sooner than planned but hey, a buyer is a buyer. So I couldn't put it away last night, thus the WARM decision.

It's been in the crock for nearly 24 hours? NO. Don't eat it. That's too long if it was just on warm. I have cooked chili for that long but I'm talking 18 quarts of chili and it needed that much time to fully marry together and it was cooking at 250 degrees the whole time.

I will eat anything, generally, but I would not eat beef from the crock after 24 hours.

Thanks. Bummer. My bf tried it last night and loved it. A wasted pot of beef.

It might be time to invest in a good cooler and some dry ice or even one of those fancy plug in coolers. They are worth the investment.

Wouldnt it depend on the temperature of the beef?

I checked several sites and the general statement was "the warm setting should be used for no more than 4 hours" so 12+ is not recommended. You wouldn't leave a steak in a hot car in the middle of summer for 12 hours and then eat it, would you? Same thought process.

Well, I ate some. I couldn't help it. I feel fine. The beef was hot. And yummy. I turned off the crock however and will be tossing the remainder.

I won't do it again, I promise. It was real tender. Very Birria-like. Good.

Talk to us in 24-48 hours, that's how long food poisoning takes. I hope you're fine and I've been there with just really wanting to taste something and take my chances, so I understand.

LOL ~ I still think you need to invest in a good cooler.
