Quick Help: Can I 'pause' pot roast?

thursday | Feb 13, 2008 05:20 PM

I'm just about to put my browned pot roast into the oven to cook, when work called and wants me to run in for an hour--can I put the pot roast in for an hour now, and then turn the oven off for 90 minutes, and then turn it back on when I get home, or will this dry everything out horribly? In that case, I'll just put the browned roast into the fridge for another day...but will it go bad if I don't cook it before Friday? The sell-by is today.

Thanks, hounders!
