is it safe to eat cold leftover pork,beef,gammon ??
Hi ladies im making a pork roast dinner tonight and im wondering if i can eat the leftover cold pork in sandwichs tomorrow ( without reheating it) i keep reading you shouldnt eat deli meat then found out thats a american thing as over here in the uk deli meats fine, im also wondering as christmas is coming we have alot of leftover beef,pork and gammon and wondering if i can eat that cold in sandwichs as well?? Thanks
I personally always heat everything until it's piping hot, any kind of leftovers. I don't think it would be a huge problem if you don't, I just like to do it that way because, like you, everything I read recommends it. It depends on the person, I think. I am a worrier/paranoid and I don't need one extra thing to worry about. Other don't have a problem and don't want to be THAT precautious.
I would definatly eat it! obviously if its not too old or that but i wouldnt reheat it, id worry more about not doing that properly.lol. as long as the porks fresh and well cooked to begin with it will be fine! especially if u put it with apple sauce and mustard! yum. if u dont eat it let me know and ill take it off ur hands;-) xxxx
I'm not going to lie... Sometimes I plain forget, and sometimes I don't think straight... or rather yet... sometimes I'm feeling naughty and just can't help myself! lol
ie. We were having raw clams on the half shell...and I wanted some... I ate about half a dozen of 'em... and realized... that's a big no no!
Then one day, I really wanted a Vietnamese hoagie... and after I finished it.... realized... it had pate in it!
With cold cut deli meat, when I buy it, I'll eat it the first day, when it's still "fresh" but after that, even though it's been in MY fridge, and stored properly, I can't help but notice it gets a bit... "slimier" then when I first take it home, so I just feed it to DBF instead... lol
Or every now and then, I crave a nice delish Italian Sub from this place near by that is VERY famous for their Italian Sub (I'm talking about, line out the door on the weekend, and round the block in the summer time.), so I know their deli meat is constantly fresh, I will indulge myself.
I say, every thing in moderation! If you happen to eat it, don't stress about it! If you can avoid it, wonderful! But... here and there isn't going to hurt... you can't be that careful or you may as well enclose yourself in a bubble! Enjoy!
In theory, anything that you eat cold 'could' in very rare circumstances contain listeria. You've cooked the meat and properly refrigerated it right after. If you would eat cold potatoes or cold melon that's been properly handled and stored, I can't see why you wouldn't eat cold meat, assuming it's relatively fresh (not been sitting in the fridge for a week).
