- Re-heating risotto
I use a bit of whatever stock I made it with but water will be fine. Only problem I’ve had was reheating bacon and mushroom one, come out tasting of just bacon, which gets a bit bland after a few mouthfuls. Now if I’m making a big batch to save and reheat I’ll just cook the bacon seperate and add it at the end.Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
How does reheated rice cause food poisoning?
Uncooked rice can contain spores of Bacillus cereus, a bacterium that can cause food poisoning. When the rice is cooked, the spores can survive.
If the rice is left standing at room temperature, the spores can grow into bacteria. These bacteria will multiply and may produce toxins (poisons) that cause vomiting or diarrhoea.
The longer cooked rice is left at room temperature, the more likely it is that the bacteria or toxins could make the rice unsafe to eat.
Tips on serving rice safely
Ideally, serve rice as soon as it has been cooked.Posted 4 years ago
If that isn’t possible, cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour).
Keep rice in the fridge for no more than one day until reheating.
When you reheat any rice, always check that the dish is steaming hot all the way through.
Do not reheat rice more than once.zilog6128Subscriber
Don’t know if microwaving it is the key to not getting sick? I too reheat rice regularly after one/two days in the fridge (don’t always get the leftovers in the fridge that quick either). Although if I know I’m not going to eat eat in the next day or so I freeze it.Posted 4 years agocynic-alMember
I eat re-heated rice all the time, all you need is a little common sense. Ta for the OT replies, I will give this a go (car-camping wwaswas, will eat after 2hr journey). If I make it that is…I’m currently defrosting some raw chicken to bake, I’ll probably die.
I presume it’s a myth that you have to stir in the stock 5ml at a time and keep stirring it? I’m just gonna bung it all in.Posted 4 years agohunterstMember
I once got really ill from re-heating rice a couple of years ago – will never do that again!
It took about 2 hours to kick in and i was retching until the early hours.
Felt really ill all weekend and couldn’t eat anything – lost half a stone in weight over that weekend if i remember correctly and looked like shit come monday morning.
Dont do it – worst i have ever felt!Posted 4 years ago
