Found 8th Oct 2016
Ok so cannot find a answer to this, maybe you can help. I bought fresh beef ribs, I sous vide them, then froze them.
I took the cooked neat out of the freezer, then reheated and made a sandwich, I put the leftovers back in the fridge.
Can I cook that meat thoroughly and eat it again?
This meat has been cooked really well, and good quality.
What's your thoughts on this?
Thanks

Go for it! As long as it piping hot! What's the worst that can happen?

Poison myself lol. Will be scorching hot

Scorching hot = no bacteria! = tasty!

personally would only reheat once but each to their own

No problem. Just give it a blast in the microwave.

Bet you throw food out by the use by date too? X)

If you are not planning to eat all the leftovers, I would suggest putting however much you want on a plate or in a bowl and reheat that rather than constantly reheating and then fridging the whole lot.

you should only reheat once following freezing.

This is definitely the rule.

It is toxins that is the real worry when reheating food. Each time you reheat food the temperature of the food goes through the danger zone as it cools, before it is cold enough to place in the fridge. In the danger zone the bacteria can multiply and when active the bacteria can produce toxins. Reheating the food will kill the bacteria but the toxins are not destroyed. Go through the process more than once and the toxins can build up. Hence the only reheat once rule.

Also a bacteria in rice and pulses only go dormant when cooked and will activate as soon as the temperature drops, so you should be extra careful with rice and pulses.

Of course at home you can take your chances but when cooking for others best to stick to the one reheat rule.

I don't actually but I do work in a kitchen so follow the rules at home as at work where you can only safely reheat once
