I accidently left out a steak the other night after cooking for about 6 hours.
It shrunk in size and gained a bit of a tint on the exposed side.
In my pizza eating days, I wouldn't blink twice at leaving a pizza out overnight and eating it the next day for breakfast. But that was loaded with miles of junk. And wasn't steak.
What I want/need to know, if I wish to preserve the sanctity of my grass-fed sirloin, is what's safe? The internet has returned inconclusive ask yahoo results, and I'm certain someone here can break down the science and convince me not to chop up and eat my sadly tainted beef or do so with a reassured mind. (Note: I will not personally hold anyone responsible if I get sick, so be as objective as possible. I am okay with erring on the side of caution, but if I have unneeded worry, I'd rather know so.)
