Can I Brown Beef For Slow Cooking the Night Before
I would like to prep my Beef Wellington the night before. I would sear, cover with mushrooms, prosciutto the night before, refrigerate overnight then wrap in pastry the next day before cooking. Is this safe?
Yes, should be safe, provided your beef was fresh before preperation.
Possible Duplicate: Is it safe to cook a steak that was left out (raw) for 7 hours? My husband pulled a moose roast out of the freezer, marinated it in the fridge for 2 days and then put it in the slow cooker this morning. I just got home and noticed that he never plugged in the slow cooker, so this defrosted roast has been sitting on our counter for 7 hours. I plugged the slow cooker in and turned it on high. There's no dairy products in the marinade. Are we going to get sick if we eat this roast?
Possible Duplicate: What is the best cut of beef to use for stews? I had a conversation with a cruise passenger on my most recent vacation and he spoke a bit about stew. It inspired me to make stew. I've never really made stew before and I didn't get a chance to ask him this question: What types of cuts of beef are ideal for cooking stew? P.S. If you have suggestions besides beef cuts, i'm open to learning about them as well. But for specificity and scope of our discussion i'm primarily set on making a beef stew in the near future.
it around 8:30 p.m. and cooked it for an hour and a half at 350 then turned it down to 250 to cook all night. Sometime in the night my roaster oven bit the dust and when I awoke at 7:00 a.m. this morning and went to check on it, the oven wasn't working, and the meat was not completely cooked and had cooled to an internal temp of 80 degrees. I quickly put it in the regular oven to finish cooking, but will it be safe to eat? I just don't know how long it had been off. This was over $30.00 of meat and I hate to waste it. I can cook it all day today, would you risk eating it?

Possible Duplicate: Anyway to avoid grease splatter? I am trying to work on using my stove more often, since I have been told that the oven can dry out foods easier. I was cooking some delicious hot Italian sausage last night, and I noticed something. After the food was done cooking, there was a thin layer of grease on my stove and on the floor in front of the oven. How can I stop grease from spattering out of my pan?
the night before. I am discounting the probability that the roast beef fairy came by and swapped out our leftovers with better ones. Should I have let the roast rest longer? What is the procedure...I recently made roast beef that cooked for ~ 8 hours. I took it out of the crockpot and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then I sliced it into pieces and we ate it. It was pretty good. The leftovers were packed away. The odd thing was the next day at lunch, the meat, which seemed uniformly brown the day before, was now a nice pinkish color in the middle (keep in mind I had cut the entire thing
I've been cooking a 15 lb (7 Kg) pork shoulder for 24 hours, and the temperature has been around 140°F (60°C) for both meat and liquid. I didn't realize the temp was so low until just now when I stuck a thermometer in it. Its a new (to me) slow roaster that is quite large, and has temperature written on the dial. I had the dial set to 275°F (135°C), but obviously the actual temperature is much lower that. I've turned up the temperature and will get it to a cooking temp of 275°F, but will it be safe to keep cooking the meat this way? I think I should get the meat close to 190°F (90°C).

I recently started cooking filet mignon for my wife (I hate steak/beef myself) every once in a while by (1) coating the steak in a melted butter rub (that has a bit of salt and pepper), then (2... of letting the steaks come to room temperature for a while before cooking, whereas this time I let the steaks sit out for a little over 30 minutes before proceeding.

When I seared them, they failed to brown quickly, and perhaps because I then overdid the searing, the steaks came out pretty tough (and visually
