Help I forgot to turn my crockpot on!

Rban1000 | Oct 26, 2012 10:04 PM

I made a beef stew (cholent) for my family with a lot of beef and beans and I forgot to turn it on for 4 to 5 hours, not sure exactly. As soon as I realized it I turned it on to the highest setting for 1.5 hours and now it is on the Low setting bubbling. It will be cooking on low for at least 12 hours more because my family is orthodox and they will be wanting to eat it tomorrow for lunch.
Is it ok to feed them or should I break the news that there is no cholent stew for Saturday lunch because I spoiled the meat?? It smells good and I am feeling terrible about this can I serve it to them tomorrow?
