Thai was left out over night. Nuke it extra long?

A/C was on, never warmer than 76 over night and it was in the Styrofoam box. As to be expected the wife blames me knowing full well she was the last one at the table smiling smiley That was going to be lunch for me. Will nuking it extra long take care of anything starting to go bad?

You went to college, right? (well, BSU...whatEVER!)

Sure it's good.

I KNOW you couldn't have live in a SORORITY, Nancy...since they don't ALLOW Sorority (houses) at BSU!

EAT IT!!!

I bet it's fine but I tend to scoff at expiration dates.

At college the Thai rarely made it past the first night. With five guys in the house there were rarely any leftovers. smiling smiley

Plus, I had health insurance then!

Any time I nuke extra long I get hard as a rock.

Edit:
OK, I hear the snickering down in back.
Anytime I nuke too long, whatever I nuke turns to leather.

PSU doesn't allow sorority houses either. Something about an old law that says more than x unrelated women living together is a brothel.

So?

Nuke it extra long to kill the freshly laid roach larvae.

At this point, it's not the nasty bugs you have to worry about, as long you heat it thoroughly... Sounds like your food was in the "danger zone" (between 40 and 140) for a significant amount of time.

It's the toxins they left while partying on your Phad Thai that will take you down.

Maybe spring for some "new" stuff?

Cheers, J

Kind of depends on what exactly was in it to some extent.
Regular heating will kill any bacteria infestations, but I believe food poisoning comes from toxins produced by the microbes, and nuking won't neutralize those.
If it was me, I'd probably eat it. It started out presumably bug-free last night . . . I think our society is a bit overboard with the refrigeration thing.

Okay, if you're really worried and cheap...pressure cook it. The higher temps will kill the stuff.

THEN...follow it with a lot of alcohol.

...And the question remains: Exactly which variety of Thai food are we talking about?

Chicken, beef, or vegetarian? Probably no problem.

Seafood? I wouldn't chance it.

Safest bet is to follow these instructions:


1- Turn on house exchaust fan
2- Find handy fire extinguisher
3 Put styrofoam container and Thai food into pyrex casserole with cover
4- Nuke it for 10 minutes on high
5- Remove with oven mitts
6- Place in sink until cool
7- remove the now chemically safe 'slug' of solid waste and throw in trash can.
8- Eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Pork Pad Thai. My concern was the raw (?) sprouts. They didn't taste cooked, but fresh from the veggie isle.

My question is, "What would Paul F. do in this situation?"

After all he is the resident consumable product expiration expert. He is given the title of "expert" because he is still alive and it sounds better than calling him "lucky."



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

his opinion is only valid for the 'upper limit' of this control process.

That is if and only if he says he would NOT eat it, then in no WAY should any OTHER human ingest it.

However, if he says YES he'd eat it, it still does not translate into actionable data on MOST other human consumptionability. smiling smiley

The rule of thumb is no more than 2 hours in the aforementioned "danger zone" before you should throw away cooked food.

Since food may be in the "danger zone" for some time even as it is being cooled in the fridge, you should include at least 40 minutes of fridge time in that calculation.

In other words, throw it away.

Is it really worth it?


I mean do you want to lose a day or two of your life by being stuck in the john, or even worse the hospital?

That is my test.

30 minutes after ingestion, I'm doing fine. I think the two double-stuff oreos helped to ease any negative effects.

You never mentioned oreo cookies earlier.

A couple shots of good Southern whisky probably wouldn't have hurt, either.

Good to see you've cut the cord. Just don't associate with any foreigners for awhile. smiling smiley (according to matt, that MUST be what I'm thinking, so I might as well say it. LMAO)

There's usually egg in pad thai. So if it was me, I wouldn't have eaten it. Plus I usually get chicken, which doesn't last too long.

Just because you don't get sick doesn't mean it didn't have some extra bacteria in it, that just means your immune system is working smiling smiley
