Sloppy Joes Sitting On The Stove: To Eat Or Not To Eat
 
My lovely wife made some delicious homemade sloppy joes but if sat on the stove, in the original cooking vessel for 12 hours. It was covered and it was boiling when she covered it. Our inclination is to pitch it because it seems like an awful long time at that perfect temperature for bacteria. Can you offer an educated answer as to pitching this food :sad: or reheating it and eating it. :smile:

I'd appreciate your honest opinion.

I don't know how "educated" it is, but I would toss it!

When in doubt, throw it out. I'd toss it, syd. Better to be safe than sorry. Buy some more ingredients and have her make another batch.

12 hours is way too long to sit in the danger zone (40-140F). I think the rule 4 hours or more in the danger zone is unsafe.

I am the trader - I would eat it, my chili usually always sit out over night - too hot to but in fridge. But that is just me, you should be safe- I am not so good about that. But I am still kickin' pretty good ! This is NOT an educated answer, just mine !

I'll bet it's still good, but we threw it our anyway. Like many of you said, better safe than sorry. I appreciate all your advice and so quickly too!

LOL :lol:

Like you said sydfan, chances are it was still good, but you certainly do not want to be on the loosing end of that bet. You made the right choice!

Reheat to boiling again for 10 minutes and enjoy.
