OK to brown meatballs, refrigerate and cook the next day?

I didn't have time to finish cooking this recipe last night >>

Only got through part 2 and then just refrigerated the meatballs. Am I going to poison us by finishing the recipe tonight?

  1. So long as they come to 160 F internal temp the next day (i.e.: don't just warm or toss them in sauce- give it a good proper simmer), you're good!

    1. Well, I eat leftover rare hamburgers, often cold, so I say you are fine. That said I do grind my own meat.

      1. OK great, thanks. I'm pregnant so not wanting to risk anything.
