Mistake with Ground Beef
I think I made a thoughtless mistake. I thought I'd try using the slow cooker to make chili. Without thinking, I put RAW ground beef in and then all the other ingredients all at one time.
I know the meat would have tasted better having been browned.
My concern is: will the ground beef be heated/cooked enough
to be SAFE to eat?
I'll use my thermometer to check the temp tomorrow.
I'd chill it and try to scrape off some of the fat. Of course if the point was to eat it the same day, I guess that wouldn't work. By the way, I'm surprised by the number of times I've seen people put raw hamburger into a kettle of water when making chili on the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives show.
