I cooked a small (grassfed beef) round roast in my tiny 1.5 quart crock pot last night. Put it in after work, probably around 7, on high. Checked it at midnight, and in my tired state I evidently didn't check well enough. It seemed done, so I put the liner containing the roast and its accompanying veggies in the refrigerator and went to bed. (I know you aren't supposed to refrigerate things in the liner---but it's only a 1.5 quart container, so it should cool quickly, right?) Went to have some roast for lunch today and discovered it is still quite pink inside. Not tender enough, either. I don't know what I was thinking not cutting into it last night. Can this roast be finished on the stove, or must I chuck the whole thing out?? I was hoping to get a couple meals out of this, so I'm quite chagrined.
