    anyone here make their own in a large batch and eat on it all week (or longer). just wondering how or when you know it's time to toss it rather than make one more sandwich? very spicy food is sometimes harder to tell when it's past its prime and that's my problem; you don't know if your stomach is upset because of the spices or because it has gone south.

    When I make a large pot full, I utilize an appliance called a Freezer for the leftovers.

    Works quite well.

    I've read more than once, doctors saying 3 days is the limit for such.

    I've had more low grade food poisoning than I care to have had. Not interested in having it again, so I err on the side of caution. YMMV

    hmm, what is this freezer you speak of? only available to the rich and smug?

    tastes like crap after it's frozen, but that's just me. looks like it's going out to the raccoons. they KNOW edible food.

    One sure fire way to avoid that is to leave out the meat. Just like Peggy Hill did with this batch that Bobby Hill referred to as "All Sloppy and no Joe!".

    Coincidentally, Bobby Hill had a racoon that he shared his food with also.

    Yup, Raccoons have discerning palates to be sure...

    Well maybe not all Raccoons..

    I once found one with his head lodged into a can of Dinty Moore Beef Stew..

    Now THAT Raccoon had no class.

    As someone who hasn't had a Sloppy Joe since probably 3rd grade in the school cafeteria, I have to ask.....

    Is there some sort of secret quality Sloppy Joe recipe that I'm missing out on?

    It's not like an unfrozen, uncooked piece of meat. There's generally enough salt and acidity and sugar in the ingredients to keep the cooked filling from going "off" if it's kept in the fridge. I'd not be worried about eating it for a week.

    Definitely just you. I'm pretty picky about food and always freeze leftover spaghetti sauce, chili, soups, stews, AND sloppy joe and have NEVER detected a loss in quality. Are you putting it on buns and freezing those? :rolleyes:

    Neither have and I highly doubt there's something we're missing out on...

    So it seems the Sloppy Joe is somewhat accepted here.

    No posts of contracting violent diarrhea after eating one.

    Can I refrigerate or freeze leftover cooked hamburgers? How should they be reheated?
    If ground beef is refrigerated promptly after cooking (within 2 hours; 1 hour if the temperature is above 90 °F), it can be safely refrigerated for about 3 or 4 days. If frozen, it should keep its quality for about 4 months.

    When reheating fully cooked patties or casseroles containing ground beef, be sure the internal temperature reaches 165 °F (73.9 °C).

    Cooked or not, ground meat is only good for a couple days in the frig. Too much exposure to air is involved. Freeze it in meal or snack portions and don't reheat the big pot over and over each time you have leftovers.

    Personally, the idea of eating the same thing two days in a row is akin to eating poop. What goes in comes out and you should not be putting the same thing back in that you are eliminating.

    This doesn't apply to fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts or breads.

    Anything classified as slop, yes.

    My cauldron of sloppy joes usually goes bad after about 5 days, so I have to eat slim jims for dinner on the weekends. I used to think it improved with age, but my chronic diverticulitis, rectal bleeding and anal seepage proved otherwise.
