How long will pulled pork leftovers keep in the fridge?
« on: July 18, 2013, 12:36:09 PM »
I am a bachelor.  Obviously.  How long will pulled pork leftovers keep in the fridge?

How will I know if they are gone bad?

Thank you.

KK, you worry more about this... Unless it looks, smells, or tastes funny, it's fine.  And I would hazard to say that delicious pulled pork leftovers don't last long enough in anyone's fridge to go bad. Just man up, and make yourself a sammich!  :tongue:

I don't like vomiting or the other one.   :-[ Hence my worry!  :lol:

I ate two sandwiches worth of pulled pork.  It tasted fine (tasted a slight bit harder than I expected, but otherwise no big deal), smelled like pulled pork. 

And, yea, they shouldn't have lasted as long as they have, but I got lazy and wasn't really at the apartment much.  :(  Whoops...  :'(

Food tends to keep longer than people think it does. As long as it doesn't look, smell, or taste odd, it is most likely fine.

My rule for food is I usually use it within five days of when it was cooked, or I toss it. I make exceptions if I'm starving, and the food in question appears totally fine. I've never gotten sick yet.

Of course, I may just have an iron stomach, so I would just use your best judgement. Thankfully, God gifted us with all the senses we need in order to figure out if our food is edible.

4-5 days if your fridge is cold and it wasn't left sitting at room temp at all.

You need to add a little water when you reheat it.

But then we couldn't have this exhilarating discussion...

This chart says 3 to 4 days, it may be helpful for future reference.
