How long can corn beef sit out after being cooked

Asked March 18, 2020, 5:51 PM EDT

I cooked a pot of corned beef and cabbage and carrots and potatoes and they cooked it thoroughly. Had some for dinner. Then fell asleep with it out on the stove so it has been out about 10 hours. Can I warm it up and eat it again. I hate to waste it was so delicious

Corned beef is no different than any other food that requires refrigeration to be safe (in other words there is no preservative with the processing it goes through). Therefore, since it was not properly cooled and refrigerated, you would be taking a big risk in eating this after it sat out for so long. Please discard it without eating.
